If one were to sum up the best of Hokkaido, the list would certainly include its abundance of beautiful creatures, the environment, food, and the attraction of its cities.

Some places where you can experience the wilderness of Hokkaido include the snowy slopes of Niseko, where you can enjoy skiing, and the many national parks such as Akan National Park, Daisetsuzan National Park, and Shiretoko National Park
