Tour the triangular area which offers truly “golden” experiences, and tons of places to see!!
The area which encompasses “Abashiri,” the center for drift ice tourism, “Lake Akan Hot Springs,” main hub for accommodations, and “Kitami,” the city in between the two, is significant for experiencing the typical activities of winter in Eastern Hokkaido. This “golden triangle area,” is packed with fun activities such as viewing drift ice and frost flowers, taking part in winter activities, and is also a great place to enjoy delectable foods. Transportation throughout the area is made easy due to a convenient and thorough public transport system. This is a new and recommended course for enjoying winters in Eastern Hokkaido.
We suggest you utilize JR, and network of buses that connect various areas of Hokkaido for touring the Golden Triangle during winter.
