About Your Trip

Travel to Hokkaido to revel in the snow-capped slopes and enchanting culture of Japan’s 2nd-largest island. Enjoy a lift pass, including skiing gear, for the ski hills of Sapporo Teine, a world-class resort on Mt. Teine. Ideal for skiers of all levels, this resort boasts approximately 15 runs — the longest at 3.4 miles (5.4 kilometers) — and a kid’s park for tubing and sledding. A high-speed quad chairlift reaches the summit in 4 minutes. At the top, take in the spectacular views. If you're new to skiing or need to brush up on your skills, enjoy a complimentary ski lesson.

The next day, venture to the charming port city of Otaru, known for its superb arts and crafts. Along the way, stop at Shiroi Koibito Park, a popular destination for those with a sweet tooth. The on-site factory produces the iconic white cookie with a layer of white chocolate. At the Otaru Music Box Museum, housed in a magnificent century-old building, marvel at the impressive array and craftsmanship of the countless melody-makers. Try your hand at making a traditional music box. Transfer to your next hotel, The Lake View Toya Nonokaze Resort, home to hot springs baths that are perfect for relaxing away the busy day.

On the way back to Sapporo, stop at Showa-Shinzan Kuma Bokujo, a bear park and conservation area. The brown bears on display are native to Hokkaido. Continue to the Mt. Uzu area and enjoy a gondola ride on the Usuzan Ropeway up the mountain for panoramic views. Explore customs of the Ainu — northern Japan's indigenous inhabitants — with a visit to the Ainu Museum. There, take in a traditional folk dance of the Ainu, indigenous peoples who are listed as one of UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritages. Back in Sapporo, be sure to take advantage of all the city has to offer, with leisure time to explore at your own pace.

What we love:
• Mt. Teine hosted alpine skiing, bobsleigh and luge competitions during the 1972 Winter Olympic Games in Sapporo.
• At the south end of Otaru Canal lies Sakaemachi Street Historic District, where old banks and trading houses have been converted into quaint boutiques and shops.
• Sapporo is one of the fastest growing cities in the world — in the 1860s it was populated by a few indigenous settlements and is now the bustling home of nearly 2 million people.
