Browse Our Tours of Hokkaido

A custom Hokkaido tour reveals a lesser-seen, least-developed side of Japan—a place where rugged charm and pristine wilderness contrast starkly with the modern glitz of Mainland Japan. Boasting some of the nation’s most unspoiled countryside, the second-largest and northernmost island of Japan is a wonderland for outdoor enthusiasts in the summer, and skiers and snowboarders in the winter. World-famous Hokkaido ski resorts such as those in Niseko Valley regularly top skiers’ lists as must-ski destinations. Throw into the mix a lively urban scene in Sapporo, delicious regional specialties (including beer!), intriguing indigenous culture and a world-renowned annual snow festival, and Hokkaido proves itself as one of Japan’s most surprising destinations.

What’s Special about Hokkaido?

Hokkaido breaks stereotypes. While much of Japan might seem like the trend-conscious, urban hub of Asia, tours in Hokkaido reveal a Japan with a slower pace and more rugged lifestyles. You’ll find sublime slopes at Niseko Ski Resort, northern hospitality in Sapporo, and fascinating Ainu culture throughout the island.

Indigenous Culture

In addition to its expansive natural vistas, Hokkaido is home to a unique indigenous culture. The Ainu people have largely assimilated into Japanese society, but their proud heritage, legends and lore continue to influence Hokkaido culture.

Unique Climate

Hokkaido is much colder than the rest of Japan, with four distinct seasons and a long, snowy winter. In the summer, average high temperatures reach roughly 22 degrees Celsius.

Unspoiled Nature

The nature found here is unlike that of the rest of Japan. Here, wide-open spaces, snow-capped mountains, family farms and vast flower fields reign. Even the ocean and its rocky cliffs have a distinctly northern feel.

Outdoor Activities

While Hokkaido’s snow-capped peaks offer skiers and snowboarders a powdery paradise, the volcanic hot springs here will have you appreciating the island’s onsen culture.

Après-Ski

While the main entertainment is whizzing down a dazzling white slope, Hokkaido also offers great food, nightlife and après-ski hotspots. Niseko’s entertainment scene offers roughly 100 lively restaurants and bars, while a trip into Sapporo will fulfill all your entertainment needs.

Pioneer Spirit

Until roughly the late 1800s, Hokkaido was the land of the indigenous Ainu people and a rugged frontier in the eyes of mainlanders. Even after the island was developed and settled by mainland Japanese, a strong pioneer spirit remains.
