Frequently Asked Questions about Winter Hokkaido Activities / Experience Leisure / Play

Q What is the best season to travel to Hokkaido?

A Hokkaido is Japan's world-class "sacred place for winter tourism and leisure." Hokkaido in winter is not only full of activities and gourmet food, but also many events are held. Traveling to Hokkaido, where it is cold and snowy, tends to be popular in spring and early summer when the weather is nice, but by clarifying the purpose of the trip, it can be said that it can be the best season even in midwinter.

Q Hokkaido in winter ... Precautions for clothing

A It is not uncommon for Hokkaido in winter to be cold and the maximum temperature below freezing. We recommend hooded down jackets and coats for cold weather in case of snow. Although it is extremely cold outside, it is often well-heated indoors, so ease of putting on and taking off is also important. Also, as the road surface freezes and becomes slippery, prepare waterproof shoes with anti-slip and spikes.

Q What you can do in Hokkaido in winter

A "Experience of snow and ice" cannot be missed during the winter season trip to Hokkaido. Besides skiing and snowboarding, there are many mysterious winter activities. I definitely want to experience activities unique to Hokkaido, such as staying at a hotel made of ice and snow, and observing Japanese cranes dancing in a marsh that looks like a white carpet laid by the snow.

Q What are the popular winter activities in Hokkaido?

A "Wakasagi fishing", a big standard for sightseeing in Hokkaido in winter, is a very popular event. You can experience it in various places in Hokkaido. "Snowshoes" and "snow trekking" are attracting attention as activities that even people who are not confident in winter sports can easily get to know the snow. Although the location is limited, the "Drift Ice Sightseeing Boat" is also an event that you can experience only in winter in Hokkaido.
