This northernmost region of Japan is known for heavy snowfall during the winter which attracts skiers and snowboarders every year. Though popular in winter, Hokkaido’s vast wilderness comes alive in autumn with countless national parks perfect for hiking and camping—aka quintessential autumn activities.

Hokkaido is the only prefecture in Japan that has its own region all to itself due to the wide landmass it covers.

The whole Jozankei Onsen area is widely famous for its beautiful autumn foliage. The Hoheikyo Dam is a popular destination to catch a memorable view of koyo (autumn leaves). Jozankei also has a local Koyo Kappa Bus Tour which takes you around to the most magnificent views in the Jokanzei area.

Odori Park certainly is that gorgeous in autumn. It's one of my nicest memories of my visit to Hokkaido, in October, 2017, and I can't wait to return next year. Having the locals stare at me for walking around in jeans and a t-shirt made it even more fun. I couldn't believe how so many of them wore layer upon layer of outerwear when the temperatures were 8-12C. That's tanning weather for me.
