These five areas of Hokkaido are deep, interesting and popular. The airports in each area are connected to Tokyo International Airport Haneda. 90% of visitors to the five areas visit these areas, which confirms the popularity of these areas. Why not take the time to visit each area?
Nowadays, “slow and enjoyable travel” is popular in Hokkaido. Traveling by personal arrangement is on the rise, and a “slow trip” can be enjoyed by deeply appreciating the area’s nature, experiences, history, culture, town walking, and gourmet food. The trip is enlivened by interaction and conversation with local people. Hokkaido can be enjoyed many times: in winter when it is covered with snow, in spring and early summer when flowers bloom all at once, and in autumn when the leaves change color.
