Meet the Ainu people of Hokkaido, a rare community with rich culture in the arts, music, and ceremonial customs. Marvel at the sculptures of Kan Yasuda, a talented Hokkaido artist with worldwide fame. One of the best ways to experience the culture and lifestyle of the land is through food. Japanese cuisine is worldwide famous, the most popular destination to eat seafood in Japan is Hokkaido! Why not eat it fresh here? Three oceans, fresh air, fresh water flowing from the mountains, and never-ending plains topped with passionate farmers, make many of the best ingredients in all of Japan. We offer tours to meet the locals and learn their culture first-hand; cook with a fisherman’s wife, or harvest ingredients for a pizza baked right on the fields.
If you love the outdoors, fresh air, and wide open landscapes, you’ll be happy to know it all becomes your playground for exciting activities. Enjoy rafting, cycling, hiking, canoeing, skiing and snowboarding in powder snow at Niseko and more (by CAT or by helicopter too!). Walk along the moving drift ice over the northern sea, and even soar the skies. We can organize tours to match your interests, from a 6-day cycling tour to 4-day hiking across Hokkaido’s mountain ranges! Anything is possible, even just a quick adventure in your travel itinerary.Whitewater Rafting
