Daisetsuzan National Park and Tokachi, Hokkaido

Sky image

Daisetsuzan National Park is Japan’s wildest and largest national park, and Tokachi is the heartland of Japan's wild northern island, Hokkaido.

Daisetsuzan is known as the rooftop of Hokkaido for its unspoiled mountain peaks, and Tokachi is blessed with rich nature popular among fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts. Here you will find majestically wide plains, which are anchored by snow capped mountains and crystal-clear rivers and lakes.

Itinerary

Day 1: Daisetsuzan National Park

Pick up your Moving Inn camper van at Obihiro Airport and explore the natural beauty of Daisetsuzan National Park, the “roof of Hokkaido“. Stop at Rokka no Mori before driving into the national park and staying at a campground by Lake Shikaribetsu.

Day 2: Drive to Kita-no-Mori Forest Site

Explore the lake by canoe or go for a hike before driving to an onsen for lunch and a hot spring soak. Then drive to Moving Inn’s “Kita-no-Mori”, a magical campground hidden deep in the forest, where you can park your van next to your suite. Staff will prepare ingredients and assist you in preparing a meal. Enjoy the sauna and open-air bath while stargazing at night.

Day 3: A Day in the Forest

The staff will prepare a Japanese breakfast for you, and then you can go on a morning hike along the Nubinai river. You’ll move to the Grand Suite Nagame to see a different side of the forest campgrounds. We will teach you how to extract todomatsu essential oil in the afternoon. Dinner on this night will be prepared by a local chef.

Day 4: Visit famous spots in Tokachi

The staff will prepare a western breakfast and you can join morning yoga by the river or just relax until checking out. The Moving Inn will give you recommendations for scenic spots to drive around this final day, and then you’ll drive back to Obihiro Airport for departure.
