Central Hokkaido Travel Guide


As you leave the megacity of Sapporo, Central Hokkaido (simply called Do-oh) is such a good distillation of all Hokkaido highlights that can be visited in a day or longer. It is an easily explored region on a short schedule and you can accesible a wide range of must sees. The nostalgic port town Otaru is the best destination from Sapporo if your time is limited. Japan’s most cosmopolitan ski resort Niseko makes a memorable vacation – along with a lot of onsen options. Shikotsu-Toya National Park contains active volcanos and calm caldera lakes. Sorachi holds several mining remnants since the 1870s. Horse lovers should head southeast to Hidaka.
