While there is more than enough golf to keep visitors occupied for at least a week, there are many other attractions to be enjoyed including outdoor, cultural, and culinary.

White-water rafting and canoeing on the Shiribetsu River between May and October are extremely popular, with several operators offering organised group trips. Sea kayaking in the Sea of Japan, especially to the famous Blue Cave of the Shakotan Peninsula, is a perennial highlight.

Hiking, cycling, mountain biking and fly-fishing are also popular. Horse riding is also available. There are some fun activity parks or craft activities and local events.

Don’t miss Hokkaido’s renowned food experiences at a myriad of local restaurants and eateries as well as the famous onsen experience – traditional hot mineral spring baths that can be found all over the island.
