Indulge in powder snow of Furano, Hokkaido
Hokkaido is a beautiful, year-round destination, but is probably most famous as a top ski destination in Japan. Hokkaido consistently receives high quality powder snow each winter, and there are plenty of ski resort areas where you can experience this. They range from international favourites like Niseko, to the family-friendly Kiroro, and Furano which balances well-developed facilities and an authentic atmosphere.
Situated close to Hokkaido's smoking volcano Mt. Asahidake, what makes Furano – which is most famous for its lavender fields in summer – a great winter ski destination? Let us give you a sneak peak at Furano's many facilities, activities, and attractions through our live stream!
Dive into the crystal clear waters of Okinawa
From unique red-tiled houses to lush mangrove forests, Okinawa – which is a chain of 160 subtropical islands – makes a interestingly diverse destination. Thanks to its unique history, Okinawa is famous for its fusion cuisine and special culture that is unlike anything on mainland Japan.
As it is surrounded by azure seas, most come to enjoy the waters, whether by swimming, kayaking, or diving in some of the world's most breathtaking underwater sites. Hear what it's like to dive in Okinawa from two different perspectives – Scuba People in Singapore and Craft Dive in Okinawa – as we show you some amazing dive sites!
