You might've heard of Hokkaido because of the beautiful Sapporo Snow Festival and its gorgeous flower fields. But we suggest visiting as the weather transitions from warmer to cooler, specifically at the end of September and beginning of October.
Watch as you go from the beautiful flower fields of summer...
...to this AWESOME autumn explosion of colors!
You can take a virtual tour of autumn in Hokkaido, or check out Daisetsuzan National Park, Shiretoko National Park, Noboribetsu's valley, or Onuma Park -- supposedly the four best places to watch the leaves change in Hokkaido.
