I joined the guided cycling tour with 3 other friends in the fall and thoroughly enjoyed our trip from start to finish. It was definitely an adventure of a lifetime.

The views from the top of each climb was spectacular, the food was delicious and culture was inspiring. The fall season was definitely a win for the milder weather.

We were definitely glad to have taken up on the guided tour. Our guide was super friendly, engaging and took us to amazing local places we would otherwise not have located on our own.

A 5 start experience and a must for adventure seekers!

I planned a romantic surprise trip with my wife for our 10th year anniversary. She likes hiking and camping in the wild, I contacted few agents and guides but it was difficult to find somebody who really understood me, as Adventure Hokkaido, the mix of adventure and romanticism I wanted. Also they were open to flexibility (not easy in Japan), helping me with weather forecast to find the perfect window. Their guide (Yasu) and her teammate (Yuka) were really nice and fun, Yasu has plenty of nice stories about bears, and they helped me organize a romantic dinner in the snow. We slept in a very wild place, in a tent, and we had a great sunrise. Thanks to the team and Ayaka, the producer behind this trip who was really helpful. Constantin Simon

I went on a 2 Day trip to Kushiro to see the Japanese cranes in Mar 2021.

I had a great time seeing the cranes with Tobaji. The trip was everything I was hoping it would be. We saw the cranes over 2 days at a few different sites and I was really happy to see the cranes while it was snowing. Tobaji is a great tour guide!

Six months previously, I also went on a custom day trip with Adventure Hokkaido to Daisetsuzan National Park. That was also an excellent trip.

I can't speak highly enough about cycling with Ayaka Yoshikawa and her team. The cycling route, the bikes, the accommodations and the food were all excellent and of high quality. She and her team were very attentive to all the needs of our mostly over sixty year old group. They looked after all the logistics and resolved any mechanical issues with the bikes so all we had to do was pedal and enjoy the country.
The team members who supported us all spoke English and had tremendous experience in outdoor adventures. They introduced us to various aspects of Japanese culture and the local agricultural communities.

Ayaka at Adventure Hokkaido was extremely helpful from the point of first contact until we arrived in Hokkaido, and I'm sure would have been if we had had any problems during our self-drive trip. She also booked accommodation for us on Yakushima (nowhere near Hokkaido, in case you aren't familiar with Japan) much later in our trip, as a favour.
This was a 5 night self-drive trip where we organised the car hire and AH booked the accomodation, based on what we were interested in, and suggested walks etc with printed and electronic maps as back-up. Mostly birdwatching and mountains. All the accommodation we'll review separately, but the trip worked very well, and was well-paced in terms of driving etc. The only downside was the warm spring, meaning that the crane feeding had stopped early ( although we still saw plenty), and the snow conditions were very unpredictable - a lot of walks were closed, when they could have been open, and a late snowfall meant we had a lot more snowshoeing to do than anticipated! Not realy anyone's fault though! Also, we couldn't get the guides we wanted for one day, and the local birdwatching guides were not excellent - and not because of the language barrier.
Overall, would thoroughly recommend - it was the only part of our 4 week trip that was with a tour company ( the rest we did completely independently) , and was a helpful easing in to the country

Glorious scenery from well maintained roads on which the drivers have manners and respect for cyclists (one hailed us over and gave us some corn!) The guides were excellent, the food unbelievable. Despite all the cycling you will be lucky to lose weight. A truly memorable experience.
