Ice Cave of Otaki Hokkaido
Hokkaido, filled with wonders of nature across its vast open and mountainous spaces, is Japan’s second largest island. Yet Hokkaido’s natural spectacles are largely unknown around the world. Even most people in Japan know little about Hokkaido and rarely visit anywhere other than the spots on the established tourist trail.
If you love nature and are willing to take go off the main routes, the island will blow your mind. A snowshoe tour to a pristine volcanic cave in Otaki, south-west Hokkaido, could become your favorite trip to a natural phenomenon.
Access – Getting to Otaki
Otaki, Hokkaido, is home to much natural beauty and many opportunities for nature and hot spring tourism. To reach this relatively unknown but gorgeous area, it takes a drive of less than two hours from Sapporo New Chitose Airport, the largest airport in Hokkaido, south of the prefectural capital of Sapporo.
