Hokkaido is Japan’s northernmost island and Japan’s largest prefecture, accounting for over a fifth of Japan’s entire land area. Hokkaido experiences a colder winter than the rest of Japan due to its location but also a milder summer, which makes it a popular destination during the summer months to escape the heat from the southern regions. During the summer months, the Furano Lavender Fields attract thousands of tourists hoping to catch a glimpse of the beautiful lavender that fills the field. Farm Tomita is among the most popular, and near the Lavender Train Station. Sapporo, Hokkaido's capital and largest city, holds its annual Sapporo Snow Festival which also attracts tourists in the wintertime, making Hokkaido a popular destination year round.
