On a recent trip to the northern Hokkaido town of Shimokawa, we set aside a day to discover what sets this remote town apart not only from other regions of Hokkaido, but also Japan itself. As we did our pre-trip research online and through trusted locals, we discovered a wave of creatives setting up shop in recent years. Taking advantage of the region’s unique and available natural resources, they’re creating new lifestyles and businesses to make a living, while also putting Shimokawa on the radar of travelers looking for rural inspirations driven by a new generation.
