Destination guide

Northern exposure – things are about to get wild

Adrenalin junkies, rejoice! Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island, offers a wild landscape dotted with everything from volcanoes and hot springs to pristine lakes and winding wetlands. Tucked amid the scenery's natural beauty, majestic national parks and popular ski resorts serve as a playground for those in search of outdoor recreational activities. If you prefer the fast-paced lifestyle of the big city, the island is also home to thriving metropolises, including Asahikawa and the capital city of Sapporo, both of which bustle with late-night restaurants and bars. No matter where you stay, Hokkaido Prefecture vacation rentals put you close to the action.

Things to do

Don't blow your top – visiting volcanoes and caldera lakes

For a breathtaking glimpse of steaming, volcanic Mount Asahi, make your way to Daisetsuzan National Park, where hiking trails cut across colourful valley floors. Shikotsu-Toya National Park features an equally impressive landscape, with its caldera lakes, geothermal springs and the jagged peaks of Mount Yotei. Big cities bring big adventures, whether you enjoy family picnics on the lush grounds of Sapporo's Odori Park or prefer watching penguins on parade in Asahikawa's Asahiyama Zoo. The Sapporo Beer Museum caters to grown-up tastes (literally) as it offers tours of the famed beer factory and tasting sessions of the sudsy concoction.


Festivals, fishing and fun in the snow and sun

Strap on your ski boots and goggles – it's time to hit the slopes. The mountain town of Niseko is home to numerous ski resorts with trails for skiing and snowboarding. After a day on the mountain, you can rest your tired bones in one of the nearby hot spring resorts. Summertime in Niseko includes plenty of fishing, biking and golfing, as well as kayaking, rafting and canoeing in the Shiribetsu River. Sapporo offers a frenzy of festival activity, from the Winter Snow Festival featuring ice sculpture competitions, to the Sapporo Summer Festival with its beer gardens and live music.


Bundle up for some biting and blistering conditions

As Japan's coldest region, daytime highs in the winter can dip to −12 degrees Celsius, although it varies based on elevation and distance from the ocean. For instance, the northern mountains along the Sea of Japan get pounded with as much as 11 metres of snow each year. Summers on the island are warm but not humid, with highs rarely exceeding 22 degrees. Just make sure you bring an umbrella as June and July are particularly wet. Hokkaido Prefecture vacation rentals offer the best deals in the late spring and autumn once the skiing and summer crowds have left.

Natural highlights

Hokkaido – where the landscape is unBEARably beautiful

With Hokkaido Prefecture vacation rentals, you'll be near some of the island's most breathtaking natural wonders, including its forest-filled national parks dotted with tranquil lakes, smouldering volcanoes and towering waterfalls. Kushiro Shitsugen National Park is drenched in wetlands, making it the perfect home for white cranes and sea eagles. Still hankering for more wildlife sightings? The mountainous regions are home to more brown bears than anywhere in Asia besides Russia. The waters surrounding Hokkaido include the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk and the Pacific Ocean, and numerous smaller islands just offshore that are also part of the prefecture.
