Hokkaido is an island located in the northern part of Japan.
Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan. The total land area of Hakkaido accounts for 22% of Japan's total land area. The population of Hokkaido is about 5. 4 million, 4% of the total population of Japan. So we have a lot of beautiful nature. For example, there are six national parks and the world natural heritage site, Shiretoko. It would be my pleasure if I could show you the picturesque views here.
Hokkaido is surrounded by three seas, the Pacific ocean, the Japan Sea, the Okhotsk see, so we can enjoy delicious and fresh seafood (crabs, prawns, sea urchins, salmons, scallops) and sushi.
Other food and sweets are also heavenly tasty. Because Hokkaido cuisine is created by local ingredients. I can give you a lot of food & restaurant information.
Sapporo is the fifth largest city in Japan with 1. 9 million people. But if you drive one hour or so, you are in the middle of rural area surrounded by mountains and the lakes. So if you come to Hokkaido, it is guaranteed to enjoy urban sightseeing spots and food, at the same time, to enjoy soaking in the amazingly beautiful nature.
