Seeing the eastern side of Japan’s northernmost island, Hokkaido, in the winter is an experience in of itself. The abundance of scenery offered in Eastern Hokkaido is enhanced when covered in pristine white snow, and at the same time provides numerous opportunities for winter sports.
Outdoor hot spring onsens, warm sake, snow-covered mountain peaks, and quaint mountain villages make the Japan Alps the place to be for a winter getaway. Add the unique outdoor activities only possible in the winter, and you have a travel experience that will create lifelong memories.
Leave behind the busy, modern city of Tokyo as you slowly travel further and further north exploring all that Northern Tohoku and Western Hokkaido have to offer. These areas are blessed with natural scenery, but when you add snow to these already slower-paced regions, you get a beautiful and relaxing visit.
