For Tourists

Share your stories on social networks!
Show the world that Hokkaido is GENKI!

Before dawn on September 6th 2018, an unprecedented earthquake struck Hokkaido, causing great damage near the epicenter in Eastern Iburi region. Restoration and reconstruction efforts are still underway in the affected areas, but tourism services, such as transportation and accommodation, is completely unaffected throughout the vast majority of Hokkaido.
We encourage visitors to share stories of Hokkaido's abundant attractions on social media, and show the world that Hokkaido is as "GENKI" (well and in high spirits) as always!
