Hokkaido has plenty to offer throughout the year but it is perhaps at its most atmospheric during the wintry season. Blanketed with white snow all across the island creating an otherworldly scene, street lamps lighting up the canals and lanes of charming cities such Sapporo, Otaru and Hakodate, and bustling ski resorts opening their doors to excited ski enthusiasts who can’t wait to conquer the slopes, Hokkaido is truly one of the world’s bona fide winter destinations. Start your snowy adventure and learn the tricks with a two-hour ski lesson by a professional ski instructor, pump up the adrenaline and zip across the wintry landscape with a thrilling ten-minute snowmobile ride, and then end it off by acquainting yourself with a native reindeer on a sledge ride - indeed a hypnotising spell to fall under surrendering to the white magic of Hokkaido.
If you are not aware of Hokkaido’s location, we suggest to google it and you will come to realise why this island is reputed to be one of the world’s finest purveyors of fresh fish and seafood cuisine. With the Sea of Japan on the left and Pacific Ocean to its right, sea creatures grow meaty muscles and layers of fat in order to survive in the constant low temperature of the waters they live in, and this is why Hokkaido has an endless supply of fatty tuna, succulent scallops and the sweetest uni, otherwise know as sea urchin. When you are in Hokkaido, do not miss the opportunity to indulge in all these and more of the island’s scrumptious array of seafood but for a grand introduction, join us on our tours in which you get to savour Hokkaido crabs as much as you want in a buffet and be mesmerised by the theatrical display of a dancing abalone meal.
