First airing in 1981, Kita no Kuni Kara told the story of a family who left Tokyo to get back to their roots in Hokkaido. The show became synonymous with Japan’s northern island. This tour will take you to iconic locations from the show, including Goro’s Stone House and The Recycled House, which is listed among the top 100 ecological architectural structures in the world by the Public Style Institute. Snowshoeing through the forest is the only way to access the area in winter, so this tour is a great way to find a bit of peace and quiet from the bustling tourist hotspots.
