There are some wonderful ways to enjoy Hokkaido, so here are 5 of our top recommendations.
JOIN A SMALL GROUP DAY TOUR
We deliberately keep our tour groups small, because we think travel is more fun when it can be flexible and give you the chance to make friends with other travelers. We run day tours from Sapporo out to Otaru and Yoichi, Lake Shikotsu, Lake Toya, Furano, Asahikawa and tons of other places – and our days tours always include lunch and entrance fees.
Recommended for: solo travelers or small groups of friends who wish to travel with likeminded people
Maximum group size: 14
A NIGHT TOUR
If you’re looking for things to do in the evening, a night tour is a great option. These normally start around 6pm, and we have a mixture of food-hopping, barhopping, hot spring and night view tours. Sapporo is a great city to make the most the evenings in, so if you’re a foodie, or just looking to enjoy the night with others, you’re super welcome.
Recommended for: solo travelers, food lovers, people who want to go to local places
Maximum group size: 14
A PRIVATE TOUR FOR YOUR GROUP
If you’re traveling with a group of 6 people are more, chartering your own bus can be an affordable way to travel. All our day tours are available for private bookings, as well as fully customizable day or multi day options. We can provide a bus, a guide and support any plans or restaurant bookings you want to make.
Recommended for: larger groups of family or friends wishing to have a fully flexible trip
Maximum group size: No limit! We have vehicles for groups of 6-9 people, 10-16 people, and 17+ people
Hokkaido has so much to do! Whether you want to try Japanese cultural activities like tea ceremony, kimono wearing or crafts, Japanese culinary activities like mochi or soba making, or make the most of Hokkaido’s nature with outdoor activities or farm stays, our activity providers network is made of local, friendly people we’d love tointroduce you to. Our team speak a variety of languages so we can also help with translation and guiding support if you need.
