We are all proud locals and live here year round. We are 100% Japanese owned and operated, when you explore Hokkaido with us you're travelling to the places we grew up in and to where our love of the outdoors was born. We want to share the untouched natural beauty of our homeland and introduce you to our culture and local community through our unique adventure tours.

Our tours are put together by our team of local hiking, cycling and nature guides with over 10 years experience. We look forward to meeting you, sharing our home and making your next trip to Hokkaido unforgettable!

Why book your Hokkaido Adventure travel with us?

Local Guides

Our guides are Hokkaido locals and our founders were born and raised here too. We’ve been exploring Hokkaido since we were kids and now we want to share our favourite places and experiences with you, our guests.

Proudly Hokkaido Owned

We are 100% locally owned and only run tours right here in Hokkaido. We’re not a travel agent, selling someone else’s tours, we create and operate all our own original hiking, cycling and nature tours.

Real Japan

Just like where you grew up, there are places and people here in Hokkaido that only the locals know about. This is what we love most of all about what we do, sharing experiences with our guests that aren’t in the guidebooks.

What our guests say

A truly memorable experience.Paul from Tokyo

Glorious scenery from well maintained roads on which the drivers have manners and respect for cyclists (one hailed us over and gave us some corn!) The guides were excellent, the food unbelievable. Despite all the cycling you will be lucky to lose weight. A truly memorable experience.

The mix of adventure and romanticism I wantedConstantin from France

I planned a romantic surprise trip with my wife for our 10th year anniversary. I contacted few agents and guides but it was difficult to find somebody who really understood the mix of adventure and romanticism I wanted, as well as Adventure Hokkaido did. Also they were open to flexibility (not easy in Japan), helping me with weather forecast to find the perfect window. Their guides Yasu and Yuka were really nice and fun. Thanks to the team and Ayaka, the producer behind this trip who was really helpful.

Two birdwatchers take an early morning selfie on a bridge while they look for Tancho cranes. The sunrise is reflected in a calm river. The river banks are white with snow.

The trip was everything I was hoping it would be.Eric from Seattle

I had a great time seeing the cranes with Tobaji. The trip was everything I was hoping it would be. We saw the cranes over 2 days at a few different sites and I was really happy to see the cranes while it was snowing. Tobaji is a great tour guide!
