Hokkaido is surely popular as a winter destination, but you might just change your mind after seeing this autumn itinerary we’ve prepared…
Traveling around Hokkaido is one of the best things you can do in Japan in autumn. Due to its northern location, Hokkaido sees the autumn leaves before anywhere else in Japan. The area is packed with a number of famous fall foliage spots, including many exciting bucket list-worthy attractions such as the Sea of Clouds in Unkai Terrace, Blue Pond, the flower fields of Biei and many more!
It may not be the first choice for many travelers going to Japan, but for most who have been to Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, Hokkaido is exactly the next Japan adventure we are all looking for! Good thing, you can now conveniently fly from Manila to Sapporo in less than 6 hours! No more stopovers in Tokyo, unlike my previous trips.
And, of course, this guide won’t be complete without the local dishes that are in season. Check out our list from sights, to autumn foliage spots, to incredible landscapes, to food and even shopping!
