In this book, he provides personal recommendations for places to explore in and around the main cities of Sapporo, Otaru, Hakodate, and Asahikawa, then leads you on a tour of the wild and lesser-known places around the island, including:

  • The resort areas around Lake Toya and Niseko, now famous as ""the Aspen of Asia""
  • Remote offshore islands and scenic byways along the western and northern coasts
  • The vast hinterland with its rainbow fields of lavender and tulips and towering volcanic peaks
  • The rugged eastern region--home to the aboriginal Ainu people and their traditional culture
  • Hokkaido's stunning national parks, with their hot springs, waterfalls, and distinctive wildlife
This unique book--the first of its kind--allows you to view Hokkaido through the eyes of a local and to explore one of the last undiscovered regions of Japan.
