Located in the northernmost of Japan, Hokkaido is the largest prefecture in the country. It’s indeed the first place in Japan to welcome winter in each year, and the whole prefecture is covered in white snow. Numbers of winter attractions and events are available during the season, such as Onsen, snow festivals, skiing, etc.

On the other hand, summer is another best time to visit Hokkaido as various kinds of colorful, seasonal flowers flourish in vast fields. Hokkaido is known as the biggest gourmet land in the country, and especially seafood products are popular as they are fresh and reasonable.
