Hokkaido is the second largest, northernmost and least developed of Japan's four main islands. Hokkaido's weather is harsh in winter with lots of snowfall, below zero temperatures and frozen seas, while in summer, it does not get as hot and humid as in the other parts of the country. Dramatic peaks, gorges, and lakes all contribute to making Hokkaido the part of Japan where nature is at its most vivid.

Getting there ...

We had to keep the trip plan as a secret because my niece will take her high school entrance exam in Taipei on 7/14,15 (one day before our trip), and we did not want to distract her until she finished her exams. We had an early morning flight to Sapporo, and when we stepped out the airport, we all feel the Hokkaido cool summer breeze.
