About Hokkaido

Hokkaido, in northern Japan, is the country’s second largest island. Hokkaido’s four seasons offer travelers a rich variety of experiences. Sapporo, the capital, is the best place for shopping and great food. Otaru evokes romance and nostalgia. This seemingly European town was the location for the film “Love Letter.” Lake Shikotsu and Lake Toya have beautiful summer fireworks festivals. Visit the famous “Hell Valley” hot spring in Noboribetsu or walk through the flower fields in Furano. Finally, the adorable penguins in Asahikawa are a treat for any traveler.

Hot Spring
Hell Valley is the main source of Noboribetsu's hot spring waters and also an iconic hot spring in Hokkaido. The so-called "Hell Valley" is, in fact, a remnant of a crater, pervaded all year long by volcanic gas spewing from the surface of the gray and yellow rocks. The surrounding air is filled with a strong smell of sulfur, and the place is thought to resemble a scene of hell. The main attraction is the eerie volcanic valley, the center of which can be accessed by a walkway specially built for tourists.
