South & Central Hokkaido

Video by Hokkaido, Japan

Posted: December 10, 2021

In this virtual adventure, we experience both culture and nature from historical structures in Sapporo which is intertwined with nature leading from the mountains to the sea and eventually learning in-depth about Ainu culture. We start our virtual journey in Sapporo -- the proximity between bustling cities and nature can be rarely seen anywhere in the world, and Sapporo is perfectly suited for the capital of nature-rich Hokkaido. Just a subway or streetcar ride will take you to Mt. Moiwa and Mt. Maruyama, both of which are home to virgin forests that have been designated as national natural monuments. We will visit a hunters camp and learn how to set up tent and will stay the night without gas, running water, or electricity. A true and unique Ainu camping experience with an Ainu-style ceremony.
