ENJOY WINTER IN
HOKKAIDO TO
YOUR HEART'S CONTENT

In Hokkaido, the large island at the northernmost tip of Japan, winter activities are hugely popular. Whether you're visiting with friends, partners, or family, there's something for everyone to enjoy!

While plane is a handy way to get to Hokkaido from Tokyo, it's also a convenient way to get around the island.

Hokkaido is served by airports such as Rishiri Island, Wakkanai, Monbetsu, Memanbetsu, Nakashibetsu, Asahikawa, Kushiro, Obihiro, and more. Flying from Tokyo, it takes approximately 80 minutes to Hakodate and approximately 95 minutes to Sapporo (New Chitose). Flying from Hakodate to Sapporo (New Chitose) takes approximately 40 minutes.

This video shows a man and a woman enjoying winter leisure activities together.

The video begins with a digest version of the video as a whole, and we see them enjoying winter activities in Hokkaido's vast natural landscapes covered in snow.
Following this, we see them enjoying their meal on an airplane and relaxing in the ANA LOUNGE at Haneda Airport.
We then see the pair visit some of the most famous tourist areas in Hokkaido, such as Hakodate, Sapporo, and Tomamu.
On their trip, the two spend a total of five days eating fresh seafood, tasting different kinds of sake, enjoying a variety of other foods, and partaking in winter activities to their hearts' content in the great outdoors.

At the end, the logos of both ANA and Star Alliance are displayed.
