Hokkaido has some of the best cycling in Japan due to its natural beauty, cool temperatures and quiet roads. Cyclists from all over Japan frequent the wide and peaceful roads surrounding Mount Yotei National Park. Exhilarating mountain bike trails are also located nearby, with both down-hill and cross-country flow trails catering to all abilities.
Some of the most thrilling summer-time activities take place in the water! Jump into a rubber boat with your friends and challenge yourself to a rafting trip down one of Hokkaido's most beautiful rivers. Kayaking is another option, taking place in stunning locations such as the Shiribetsu River or the Oshoro Bay of Otaru. If jumping off waterfalls, swimming through crystal clear mountain water and jetting down whitewater rapids sounds appealing, then canyoning is the activity for you. It's an adrenaline-filled experience and a great way to cool off in the hotter months!
The Niseko area's local produce is recognised throughout Japan, and indeed right across Asia for its superior quality. Hokkaido supports extensive farming due to its large size, relatively small population and favorable soil and climate, and produces an abundance of fruit and vegetables in the summer months. Go fruit-picking in Yoichi and enjoy the delicious fresh fruit straight from the tree! Hokkaido is also renowned for its dairy, and the area offers many home-made ice cream shops, sweet shops and cheese factories where the products can be sampled and purchased. Enjoy a true gourmet experience at Niseko's restaurants, markets and farms!
