Lake Akan阿寒湖


Located within Akan National Park, Lake Akan is the fifth largest freshwater lake in Hokkaido. Lake Akan is famous as the habitat of the Marimo alga and the Kokanee landlocked salmon, both of which have been designated as Special Natural Monuments. In winter, the entire lake freezes over, enabling people to enjoy winter activities and sports such as fishing for Japanese Pond Smelt through the ice-skating, etc.

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.
