Hokkaido is the largest, northernmost and coldest of Japan’s prefectures. Its 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.

With its unspoiled nature (there are many national parks and wetlands), Hokkaido attracts many outdoor lovers, from trekkers in the summer to skiers in the winter.
