    Hokkaido Noboribetsu-shi Noboribetsuonsencho
    The red leaves of fall can be seen in Noboribetsu Onsen-cho at their most beautiful every year over the approximately one-month long period between late September to late October. There are observation decks located in the famous sightseeing spots of Jigokudani and Oyunuma, and one of the most attractive aspects is that visitors can enjoy the view shrouded in the rising steam. The trees have a beautiful gradation from the reds of the Japanese rowan and Japanese sumac to the oranges and yellows of the other trees. Another attractive aspect is that the fall leaves can be viewed from up close on the promenade.

    Hokkaido Kamikawa-gun Kamikawacho Sounkyo
    This famous spot for viewing the red leaves of Autumn is located at an altitude of 1260 meters, almost in the very center of Hokkaido. It has a breathtakingly superb view of Daisetsuzan National Park, Japan's largest national park. This area, also known as The Roof of Hokkaido, is in an area where the most snow falls in all of Hokkaido. It is also famous as the site of the inn, Daisetsu Kogen Sanso, which is only open 123 days a year. The summers are short, and the autumn leaves come earliest here, creating a world of primary colors like a painting. During the peak autumn leaves viewing period, this area bustles with many mountain climbers as one of the most famous spots in Hokkaido.

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.
