Hokkaido's natural environment is yours to explore
Experience the transformation of the landscape! The green season is really a testament to the raw beauty of Hokkaido. From the rivers swollen with the snowy meltwaters of spring to the verdant greens of summer and the kaleidoscopic colors of fall, the beauty is ever moving and new discoveries abound. Activate your senses, revel in the scenery, and exploit the opportunity to create unforgettable memories.
Hanami is the Japanese custom of experiencing the ephemeral beauty of the flowers that bloom on the cherry trees. (Cherry blossom viewing) Since Hokkaido is in the north, we get to experience Hanami later than the rest of Japan. Not only that, depending on the snow situation, it is not unusual to have the final spring skiing sessions at the resort too!
Other activities during Golden Week
- late-season spring snowshoe in the woods
- spring picnic under the trees
- rafting the Shiribeshi River is at its best this time of year
May and June
"Harumomiji" season splashes dabs of unique color across the landscape. Harumomiji time sees fresh new leaves sprouting amidst the melting snow of the alpine meadows. Contrast this with clear blue skies and lower altitudes that paint a spreading carpet of green. It is nature's masterpiece unique to this season.
Speaking of painterly, Kazuo Mishima's impressive Moss Phlox garden in nearby Kutchan has proliferated into a more than 5000m square display of gorgeous red, purple, blue, pink, and white fragrant blossoms that linger for 3-4 weeks. Stunning!
With the refreshing climate and long daylight hours, you can feel the land coming alive. It is a perfect travel season.
July and August
White clouds dot the deep blue sky and make you want to shout "Summer has come!" The land is a deep green and sunflower fields wash across the landscape.
Summer activities are full-on! Some people say come to Niseko for the winter, stay for the summer. Tree trekking, rafting, golf, canyoning, cycling, horse riding, fishing, hiking, and even fruit picking are all on offer in this warm bountiful season.
This is also the season for BBQ, you can see it everywhere everyday! Local produce is at it's peak and there is no shortage of things to sample from the land or the sea!
Let's stay play relax and enjoy in the summertime!
September til late autumn
The sun has become softer and the clouds float through a clear blue sky. Red dragonflies zip and dart back and forth through the cooler afternoon air.
Hiking the alpine meadows of Shinsenuma marsh or even Mt. Annupuri are perfect at this time of year. Less ambitious folk still enjoy a drive on the Panorama Line for striking views of the surrounding peaks and transient autumn foliage.
Descending to lower altitudes you find that warm summer temps linger making for the perfect conditions to conquer all 3 tree trekking challenges in the area!
Follow that with a post sunset contemplation of the clear starry countryside sky.
