Omiyage is a gift or souvenir you give to friends, coworkers, and family after returning home from a trip. Omiyage is so much more than just an edible souvenir. Here in Hawaii, bringing back omiyage from Japan is almost a tradition.

Sapporo is one of Japan’s most cosmopolitan cities. Its wide streets and tree lined boulevards give the city an almost European feel. Coffee shops and cafes proliferate throughout the city and the center is packed with a fantastic range of shops, restaurants, and bars. After a day of exploring the city you can get your energy back over a hot meal and the delicious liquid gold, Sapporo beer.

Otaru, one of Hokkaido’s most popular tourist destination for Japanese visitors is a romantic port town steeped in a rich history that dates to its glory days as a major herring center. It was the terminal station for Hokkaido’s first railroad and today nostalgic warehouses and buildings still like the picturesque canal district. There are great options for foodies and if you’re into music boxes or any kind of glass objects, this is the place! 

There is more yet, as we venture to Asahikawa, Hokkaido 2nd largest city. While here, time to enjoy the local noodle dish, Asahikawa Ramen along with visits to Ueno Farm, offering an English-style garden with a wide variety of perennial plants that change according to the season. We have included a stop at Sunagawa Highway Oasis where you will find everything Hokkaido under one roof.    

Come, join the fun on this unique Guy’s & Gal’s weekender. The ladies get to do some serious shopping while the gents will enjoy visits to 4 sake breweries and the Sapporo Beer Factory.
