Hokkaido is the northern most island of Japan and for some reason it is often omitted from many people’s Japan itineraries but it shouldn’t be.

It is now on my Japan Bucket List to visit Hokkaido during every season because of the variety of activities on offer in every season. But if you are wondering what is the best time to visit Hokkaido for your next visit this guide will round up all the great unique and seasonal things to do in Hokkaido and provide information on the weather in Hokkaido for each season to help you decide what is the best time to travel Hokkaido for you!  View Post
