Hokkaido… different beauty in different seasons…
Hokkaido, the indigenous land of Ainu, the second largest island and the northern most of Japan, is now one of the most popular tourist attractions for Thai people.
I have just been back from my second trip to Hokkaido this year!! I haven’t done this before… going back to the same place and almost the same route twice in the same year (not including Hong Kong and Singapore where I go, sometimes, several times in a year).
My first trip was during the winter in February to see the Sapporo Snow Festival. And this trip was during the summer in late of July to see the most famous lavender fields.
Both trips, I joined groups from ROH (Royal Orchid Holidays) Tour, one of the best travel agents in Thailand.
I confidentially say so since I used to be in the travelling business for 7 years and I do know well about the standard of travel services in Thailand. ROH is one of the best, and please, don’t judge them just by the prices as quality always costs money.
During my first trip, I was very impressed with the beautiful scenery of Hokkaido. It’s full of snow. Even though everywhere I passed through, everything was white, I really loved it. However, my tour guide kept telling me that it would be much different in the summer where all trees would be green and the fields we saw would be full of colorful flowers, lavender, particularly.
So, I went back there again to see if the boast was true and I am very glad that I did believe her. Hokkaido in the winter is beautiful indeed, but in the summer, it is really something different. I love it in both seasons though.
Here I have some pictures that I took. Some of them were taken at almost the same places to show you the different in each season. I do hope that you will love and enjoy them like I do.
The choice is yours! No matter which season you will choose to visit Hokkaido, I’m sure you will love it as I do. But please make sure that you will book it with ROH. With wonderful scenery, superb food and fantastic hotels, what else that you would need!
