If you are visiting the island of Hokkaido then you should definitely think about taking a trip to Abashiri which is a city that is located in one of the most northerly parts of Japan.
This means that Abashiri has a different feel and culture compared to many other spots in Hokkaido and it is also known for its very cold winters which led to it being used as a penal colony in the days of old.
