Grab a pair of walking poles, get active, and feel the forest’s positive energy on a Nordic walking tour. Just half an hour from Sapporo by car, Nopporo Forest Park is a historical forest and wildlife sanctuary home to numerous beautiful bird species, such as Ural Owls and black woodpeckers. Learn how to use your walking poles correctly from a Hokkaido Nordic Walking Association-certified instructor, then set out to enjoy the fresh air and seasonal colors. During the Fall, the vibrant red and yellow leaves are particularly beautiful. At four kilometers in length, this is a great opportunity to experience birdwatching in Hokkaido’s great outdoors.
