Hokkaido is locally considered as Japan’s natural, national treasure. Gorgeous all year round, Hokkaido is commonly defined by its amazing cherry blossom (‘Sakura’) viewing opportunities (‘Hanami’) during spring. Standing victor among all other geologically spectacular Japanese islands, Hokkaido is internationally revered by tourists for its untamed, undamaged, stunning wildernesses.
As the snow begins to melt and the brightening colours emerge - diverse and beautiful. Hokkaido’s King of Seasons - Spring, commences with blossoms of sakura, tulips, chives, poppies, perennials and pink moss phloxes. A myriad of awe-inspiring scapes of colour and life.
Experience unprecedented visuals of Hanami when you visit the remarkable Fort Goryokaku. You will be astonished by the blossoming sight of the truly historically prominent star fort. Being the main fort of the short lived Republic of Ezo and the centerpoint of Japan’s first suffrage, democratic movement - Fort Goryokaku is a must visit during this period.

Furthermore, the Matsumae Castle Park’s magnificently unique surrounding of cherry blossoms is a must see. Spring blossomings cultivates a blanket of Sakura pink upon the historical royal estate. The park always exhibits an authentic, traditional Japanese feel. During the Spring, the traditional Japanese feel prevails while coupling itself with a romantically amazing vibrance.
