    Hokkaido Sapporoshi Toyohira-ku Hitsujigaoka 1
    Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill is one of Hokkaido's best tourist attractions. Sheep are kept on the rolling hills where the lush greenery dazzles the eyes, and the heart is warmed by the idyllic countryside scenery. A statue of Dr. William Smith Clark who served as the first vice-principal at Sapporo Agricultural College (now Hokkaido University) can be seen on the observation deck. It’s a popular place to come and have your photograph taken. At the Hitsujigaoka Rest House you can have some Mongolian-style mutton barbecue food.

    Sadly, I was there at a time where the lavender was not growing. They have a very nice shop with various goods made of lavender. There is also a very good Mutton restaurant, if you are into that...

  • Futami Tsuribashi Suspension Bridge

    Hokkaido Sapporoshi Minami-ku Jouzankeionsennishi 4-chome
    The Futami Tsuribashi Suspension Bridge is a spectacular red bridge that forms part of a hiking trail in the Jozankei hot spring resort. The Bridge is 23 meters from end to end. While listening to the murmuring of the stream, visitors can enjoy the marvelous scenery, which includes views of the Kappa Pool (which is associated with legends of the Kappa river sprites) and the Futami-iwa Rock. The vistas are particularly beautiful in the autumn foliage season, when the Bridge provides 360-degree views of hills covered with gorgeous red and yellow leaves.

    Hokkaido Sapporoshi Atsubetsu-ku Atsubetsuchou Konopporo 53-2

    I saw this tower while I was heading to Hokkaido Historical Village. It looks very majestic and reminded of the tower in Lord of the Rings. The surrounding park was very serene.

Hokkaido Areas


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.
