    Joined the night tour. The tour guide tried her best to explain the wild like in Sheritoko in her limited English. Spotted owls, foxes and deers. At last, the guide led us to watch the Milky Way...

  • Konpira Crater-Remnants of the Disaster Walking Trail
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Hokkaido Abutaguntouyakochou Touyakonsen
    These trails meander around the remaining structures and remnants that were affected by the Mt. Usuzan's eruption in 2000. The trails, located in Toyako Town, start behind the Toyako Visitor's Center and Volcanic Science Hall. If visiting only the relics, the walk will only take about 30 minutes, but the full-trail course is two hours. Near the entryway is an observation tower, where one can view the Yasuragi no Ie, which used to be the municipal hot springs bath, prior to the eruption. Even with the passing of time since the eruption, one can sense the power and awfulness of nature in the sight inside the remaining sturdily structure that was swallowed with muddy waters. With just a little detour off the trails, one can come upon an exquisite emerald bright crater called the Yukun crater.

    A grass field campground found in Toyako, Abuta County, Hokkaido. Offers a variety of furnished accommodations including lodges, cabins, and bungalows. Along with the playfields and playground many people enjoy the lakeshore access to Lake Toya. With the gentle slope of the grounds the campsite is famous for its beautiful vistas.

    大きな芝生広場の周りをぐるっと囲むようにテントサイトがあります。広場で小さな子どもたちがのびのびと遊んでいるのを、テントにいながら安心して見ることができて良かったです。 テントサイトに5泊しました。芝生の状態を保つために、2日おきに、テントを移動。隣合わせのテントサイトを用意してもらえたので問題ありませんでした...

Hokkaido Main Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
