WHAT WE LOVE

If you love the great outdoors and seasonal activities, then Hokkaido is the perfect place for you to visit in Japan. Slide down snowy slopes at ski resorts during winter, walk through a sea of lavender fields in Furano during the summer, or explore the pristine Blue Pond to see various hot springs around Biei. Get a taste of Hokkaido's food scene as well: slurp on a bowl of Sapporo ramen at Ramen Yokocho at Susukino and pair it up with a beer tour at the Sapporo Beer Museum! Surrounded by the ocean, you can bet that the seafood served in Hokkaido is fresh and definitely one of the world's best. Afterward, why not pay a visit to a pachinko parlor to boost your luck?
