02 Japanese Culture


Hokkaido is located in the northernmost part of the Japanese archipelago and is at about the same latitude as major cities in the world such as Chicago, Montreal, London, Rome, and Munich. It covers an area of 83,457 km2, which is about 22.1% of Japan’s total land area. It is the largest of all prefectures, 39.7 times the size of Tokyo and equivalent to the area of Austria. Mountainous terrain accounts for almost half of the total land area, but compared to the rest of Japan, there are fewer mountains and slopes, and the land is more gently sloping. It is surrounded by three oceans: the Pacific Ocean, the Sea of Japan, and the Sea of Okhotsk. The Tsushima, Liman, Japan and Chishima Currents intersect each other, making it one of the world’s leading fishing grounds.
