Lonely Planet Ranks Hokkaido as Asia's 'Top Spot' for 2016
After dispatching its Asia-focused writers to trek through the continent's natural and urban jungles, Lonely Planet has compiled its first ever list of Asia's top 10 places to visit in the coming year.
Featuring plenty of under-explored treasures, Hokkaido came out on top as the top spot for 2016!
It's great to see Hokkaido recognised for being a true year-round destination.
Lonely planet says:
"Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island, is best-known for its "perfect powder snow" but it makes it to the top of Lonely Planet's list for its charms throughout the seasons.
In March, Japan opened its first bullet-train service to the southern parts of Hokkaido, with plans to extend the line to Sapporo, the prefecture's capital, by 2030."
