Make the Most of Your Time In Hokkaido
Our Japan's Far East 7 Day Wild Winter Tour travels into Hokkaido's remote and wild eastern frontier. The activities included in the tour, from nature cruises to snowshoeing along a volcano's crater, give you a good taste of the region's unique winter environment. However, we understand that many people travelling from overseas want to spend time exploring the country independently before or after their tour. The government relaxed the covid-19 border restrictions on October 11th 2022, allowing international visitors to travel independently once again.
To celebrate the return of independent travel, we are offering an extra night's accommodation before or after our February 19th 2023 Japan's Far East 7 Day Wild Winter Tour. Will you spend more time watching the cranes dancing near Kushiro? Or perhaps treat yourself to a relaxing night in a hot-spring hotel? What you do is up to you, that is the beuty of travelling independantly.
