Japan under a blanket of snow

In Japan

Try the North in winter

Japan. The North. Winter. In this itinerary Matthieu Zellweger opens a door to the northern Japan during the season that fascinates him most: winter.

This itinerary will offer you in turn modern and light aspects (the Snow Festival in Sapporo if the dates allow it), a fascinating and unfamiliar city (Hakodate), a total immersion into the harsh Japanese winter in Kakunodate before you marvel at the cultural beauties of the country further south in Kanazawa. Of course you will experience traditional Japanese inns (“ryokan”) as well as very contemporary places. Will you allow your curiosity to follow the path that Matthieu opens to the north of Japan in its most beautiful season ?
