Savour a taste of untamed Japan in Hokkaido Prefecture

Japan's largest and northernmost prefecture is home to much of the country's most jaw-dropping natural wilderness, with snow-capped mountains, crystal-clear lakes and expansive lush forests galore. But the first taste of the region for many is the sleek modernity of capital city Sapporo, a sprawling metropolis of soaring skyscrapers, bustling bars and hip galleries. As such, Hokkaido is a delight for urban adventurers and lovers of the unspoilt outdoors alike. And with Hokkaido Prefecture holiday rentals ranging from cosy city-centre apartments to luxurious mountain chalets, you're sure to find one that suits your exact needs.

Things to do

History comes to life in Hokkaido Prefecture

You'll find an eclectic array of enthralling attractions within easy reach of your Hokkaido Prefecture holiday rental. Located around 30 minutes by car from Sapporo city centre, the Historical Village of Hokkaido offers a trip back in time to the elegant Meiji era. This immersive open-air museum tells the story of the birth of modern Hokkaido, through a collection of stunningly preserved 19th- and early 20th-century buildings. Back in Sapporo itself, the Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art is a must for culture vultures, with its expertly curated collection of paintings and sculptures by revered local artists. And for a breathtaking bird's eye view of the city and the shimmering sea beyond, shoot up to the observation deck of the Sapporo TV Tower, a bright red Eiffel Tower lookalike.

Activities

Swish down the slopes or soak your cares away

Receiving huge amounts of snow each year, Hokkaido is unquestionably Japan's winter sports capital. The prefecture is dotted with elegant mountain resorts, each with miles of powder-covered slopes to ski or snowboard down. In summer, the same mountains serve as a beacon to hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders. A blissful treat at any time of year is a long soak in one of Hokkaido's countless natural onsen, or hot springs. Their water is reputed to have a wealth of incredible healing properties. And each February, visitors flock from all over the world to marvel at mind-blowing snow and ice sculptures at the Sapporo Snow Festival.

Weather

Sublime summers and wondrous winters

Hokkaido Prefecture holiday rentals are often in high demand in summer, when the gloriously warm and dry weather draws hordes of visitors from Japan's stiflingly hot and humid southern regions. Naturally, accommodation in the mountains becomes highly sought-after as soon as the first winter snow starts to fall, while early booking is a must if you want to check out the Sapporo Snow Festival in February. If you're averse to the cold, you may prefer to visit in spring or autumn, when temperatures are typically agreeably mild.

Natural features

Life in the great outdoors

If you want to get away from it all without straying too far from Sapporo, Nopporo Forest Park is around 45 minutes by public transport from the heart of the city. Sprawling out over 5,000 acres, this expanse of natural spectacle is home to fragrant conifers, rare insects, flying squirrels and raccoon dogs. If you're happy to travel further afield, Akan National Park is renowned for its mysterious, mist-shrouded, crystal-clear lakes, which are overlooked by imposing volcanic craters.
