While the rest flock to Hokkaido for the snow, I came for the flowers!
Hokkaido, the northern-most part of Japan, is commonly known for its sub-zero temperatures, wintery landscapes and famous soft powder snow. But for the ones of us who can’t or prefer not to ski or simply can’t fathom the cold, there is so much more to Hokkaido than just winter activities!
During the comfortably cool summer, Hokkaido hosts some of the most magnificent flower festivals.
The rustic splendor of nature is absolutely breathtaking – rolling fields covered in wheat, endless rows of multi-colored flowers, all so perfectly manicured that even your mani-pedi would shy away.
Everywhere you look you can’t help but admire the landscape that often resembles a scene stolen directly from a movie. Simple and yet so dreamy.
For this week’s episode, am taking you to FIVE flowers fields.
Wouldn’t be surprised if you ended switching up your travel itineraries immediately since the short summer season only lasts until the end of August!

Love & light,
