Hokkaido is Japan's second largest island and a great place for travelers to book a vacation. The majority of the island falls into the classification of humid continental climate.

The scenery is beautiful with a number of lakes adding to the serene mood. A few of the lakes are Lake Akan, Lake Mashu, and Lake Shikotsu. Mount Meakan is a composite volcano and sight that many tourists find breathtaking. Sounkyo, a gorge in the Daisetsu-zan Volcanic Area, is spectacular to view. Beach-lovers can enjoy themselves soaking in the sun while in Hokkaido. The most popular Japan beach is Otaru Dream Beach. Another option is Ranshima Beach which is a charming and very lovely beach positioned snuggly in a cove surrounded by picturesque mountains and trees. Guests who are partial to studying culture have their choices of fascinating museums which include the Historical museum of Hokkaido, Hokkaido Museum of Northern Peoples, and Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art.
