TOKACHI – OBIHIRODestinations
Nature, food, and horse culture inherited from the time of pioneering
Tokachi-Obihiro is located in the eastern part of Hokkaido, surrounded by the Daisetsuzan National Park, the Akan Mashu National Park, the Hidaka-sanmyaku Erimo Quasi-National Park, and the Pacific Ocean. It is a region blessed with a number of ecosystems, such as foothills, forests, plains, rivers, lakes, and marshes, such as the Tokachi River flowing through the area. Full-scale development of the Tokachi area began in 1883, and its development was propelled by agriculture and dairy farming. It has now grown into a treasure trove of food and agriculture that represents all of Japan. Horse culture, which supported the area’s development has also been passed down to the present day.
