Hokkaido is the northernmost part of Japan and is absolutely stunning all year round. It has gorgeous forests, amazing hiking, and delicious seafood!

This awe-inspiring festival is held in Hokkaido's capital Sapporo and brings many people who want to witness mind blowing snow sculptures! This festival is around only for a limited time each year, so you'll have to make sure you find out when it is being held the year you plan to visit Japan.
Nagano Prefecture is located west of Tokyo and is pretty easy to access via Japan's convenient railway systems.

If this doesn't warm your heart in the cold winter breeze, nothing will!
