   Winter in Asahikawa

The days are cold and short during the Asahikawa winter but there's plenty to do to keep visitors occupied during the winter months. The majority of winter visitors head for the mountains, chasing the dry, perfect, powder snow for which Northern Hokkaido is famous.

Asahikawa gives you access to great snow in all directions, with Kamui Ski Links, Asahidake, Kurodake, Pippu, Canmore, and Santa Present Park a short distance from the city, while Furano, Tomamu, and Nayoro among others, provide longer range options.

The Winter Festival and Ice Sculpture Contest in the second week of February are always worth checking out, while the winter season at Asahiyama Zoo continues to attract increasing numbers of visitors year by year.

Those not so keen on skiing and snow boarding can consider snow-mobile riding or dog-sledding as fun outdoor options, while those simply looking for some rest and relaxation in beautiful mountain surrounds can check into one of the numerous hot spring hotels in the area to get away from it all.

Whatever your particular interest, you are sure to find a host of suitable travel options by basing yourself in Asahikawa.
