Join our Hokkaido Winter Festival
The northernmost region of Japan, Hokkaido is a popular vacation destination. The region is the least developed prefecture in Japan with sprawling national parks, volcanic lakes, natural hot springs, and hiking trails.
Wintertime in northernmost Japan is a particularly magical time of year given the region has an impressive snowfall that blankets the whole prefecture. From the capital city of Sapporo to the remote towns, the prefecture is inundated with almost 5 meters of snow each year.
And the best way to warm up after spending the day out in the cold is a hot cup of tea and delicious sweets made with rich Hokkaido dairy. This month, we bring you the flavors of northern Japan - from creamy butter and refreshing melon, to local seafood and corn. Join us as we go on a winter culinary journey of Hokkaido.
