Itinéraire

Asahikawa et Furano. Hakodate. Sapporo. Toya-ko et Noboribetsu. Hokkaido. Pour sortir de la chaleur et de la moiteur de l’été tokyoïte pendant notre petite semaine de vacances d’été, nous décidons de monter chercher la fraicheur au nord du Japon, dans l’île d’Hokkaido.

Hokkaido

Au programme : un petit ‘road-trip’ d’une semaine, du nord au sud ! C’est aussi l’occasion de faire un petit bout de voyage avec Claudine, Jérôme et Myriam qu’on a eu la joie de recevoir au pays du soleil levant. Nous commençons notre périple à deux seulement, à l’extrême nord de l’île. Notre but : gravir le Rishiri-Fuji, un volcan isolé situé sur l’île-volcan de Rishiri-to, accessible depuis la ville de Wakkanai. Nous atterrissons donc directement à Wakkanai où nous passons quelques heures avant de prendre le ferry.

Toutefois, pour monter au parc Wakkanai-Koen, surplombant la mer d’un petit 200m de dénivelé, nous l’avons un peu plus regretté, sachant qu’il s'agissait de vélos mono-vitesse... Nous embarquons donc dans le ferry et nous voilà en route pour l’île de Rishiri. Go to "HOT BUS " to learn about and reserve Hokkaido special optional bus tours.

10 Must-Visit Hot Springs in Hokkaido

I think of the food because the meat and vegetables in Hokkaido are some of the freshest I’ve ever had, and you can taste it. I think of the cold because I hate the cold. And I think of how there’s nothing there because, well, there isn’t–there’s just land, land, and more land. All that land means that Hokkaido has room for some of the best onsen (hot springs) in Japan. And all that cold means that you’ll want to go to several of them to soak in all kinds of natural hot baths to escape the frost.

Going around Hokkaido means either a carefully planned bus schedule or, if you have an international driver’s license, a car. 1.
