When it comes to getting the most from your vacation, keep in mind that Rebun is just just the start; Hokkaido has been blessed with an abundance of fabulous things to see and do.
Hokkaido has been blessed with some significant shrines, guaranteed to inspire both atheists and believers. The most rewarding places for travelers to visit when they arrive in a place they have never been are the spots that provide a window into the culture. Don't skip Hokkaido's art museums, indoor markets and nature museums.
Discover Hokkaido's trademark waterways. Boating and canoeing are just two of the popular ways to get active here. Pull on your woollen hat and mittens and have a go at cross-country skiing or skiing. These winter pastimes are great options for locals and visitors.
Trying regional food is usually about more than just nutrition. It is also a glimpse into the regional character. Sea urchin and squid are some of the key ingredients. There are lots of interesting dishes in this area. Try ishikari nabe (salmon and vegetable stew) or ruibe (sliced raw salmon).
As your time here draws to an end, spend what's left of your yen on last-minute mementos and bid a fond Sayōnara (farewell) to the local characters you have met and the locations you've been.
