Visit to find out more about adventure travel in Japan.

Located in the northernmost reaches of Japan, surrounded by abundant oceans on every side, Hokkaido is home to a unique range of flora and fauna. Blessed with nature, the particular ecosystems that have formed here are distinct from those of Japan’s main island of Honshu.

Furthermore, this is a land in which you can experience Ainu and Jomon cultures, while enjoying the culinary bounties of nature; cuisine made with ample use of fresh, high quality ingredients sourced from the island’s farms and fisheries. With this in mind, we truly believe Hokkaido to be a land uniquely suited to adventure travel.
