The Soya Hills are an area of rolling hills just inland from Cape Soya (the northernmost point in Japan). The Hills are a popular tourist attraction, providing visitors with an opportunity to view periglacial landforms that were created by the repeated freezing and melting of moisture in the ground during the Ice Ages; the Soya Hills have been designated as a Hokkaido Heritage site. One of the area’s must-see sights is the “Northernmost White Road,” made from tamped-down scallop shells.

Hokkaido Main 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.
