Perched on the confluence of four rivers and surrounded by green hills, Asahikawa combines a modern city experience with the pristine nature nearby.
Family-friendly places like Asahiyama Zoo and Asahikawa Ramen Village will thrill your kids. Explore Asahikawa's surroundings by going to Furano (Furano Ski Resort & Ningle Terrace), Roller Coaster Road (in Kamifurano-cho) and Biei-cho (Shirahige Falls, Shirogane Blue Pond, & more). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Daisetsuzan, relax in the rural setting at Ueno Farm, snap pictures at Asahi Bridge, and fly down the slopes at Asahikawa Kamui Ski Resort.

To find more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Asahikawa travel route app .

Getting from Sapporo to Asahikawa by train takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: drive; or take a bus. When traveling from Sapporo in February, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Asahikawa: temperatures range from -5°C by day to -7°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) to allow time to take a train back home.
