Hokkaido is Japan's northernmost island/prefecture. It has a culture and climate that is different from the rest of the country. One thing that sets Hokkaido apart is the language and culture of the Ainu, northern Japan's indigenous people.
Sapporo's festivals draw tourists from all over the world in huge numbers-- like 2 million for the Snow Festival, and almost that many for the Yosakoi Soran Festival. Then there are festivals that are cherished mainly by the locals, such as the Hokkaido Shrine Festival, and festivals specific to the Ainu, northern Japan's indigenous people. There are more festivals than can fit on the map. You'll just HAVE to come and see for yourself!!
