When to visit Hokkaido
As Japan's northernmost island, Hokkaido is known for its icy winters and relatively cool summers. Indeed, in August and July, while the rest of the country suffers in the sticky humidity Hokkaido is perfectly temperate making it Japan's favourite getaway. However, come winter, expect pretty blankets of snow and ice-locked coastlines with skiing, snowboarding and dogsledding opportunities.
