For year-round natural beauty, head to Hokkaido. In summer, you can hike mountain trails, discover icy-blue ponds, and see fields of flowers that extend to the horizon. Check out the Furano and Biei region at this time. In winter, Hokkaido becomes one of the world’s top snow destinations. A white wonderland, powder-enthusiasts from around the world flock to northern Japan for fun on the slopes. Niseko is a popular destination, with nightlife and foreign language assistance. But if you’re looking for something a little less touristy, try Rusutsu.
