Japan's northernmost island of Hokkaido is famous for skiing, wild nature, lavender fields and fresh seafood. Sapporo, the capital of Hokkaido, is known for beer, crab and ramen. Go hiking around the Shikotsu-Toya National Park, filled with volcanic calderas and clear lakes. Eat your fill of fresh summer fruit or the local specialty 'genghis khan', a mountain of grilled mutton. Popular in the winter for skiing, and in the summer as a place to escape the heat, Hokkaido awaits you!
