Eastern Hokkaido Sightseeing Bus: Utoro Onsen Resort / Stay at Shiretoko Daiichi Hotel [Start/End in New Chitose Airport]


Hokkaido Fukkouwari Tour The Japanese government has subsidized JPY6,000 for this tour. Fukkouwari (post-earthquake discounts) is a campaign to help Hokkaido's tourism industry bounce back quickly following the devastating 2018 Hokkaido Eastern Iburi earthquake. The “We are GENKI Hokkaido/ Welcome! HOKKAIDO, JAPAN Campaign” is designed to reassure Japanese and overseas visitors that the locals are recovering well and that the region is open for business. To help with the process, the national and local governments are subsidizing local businesses and services so they can offer tourists incentives to come and visit. This tour is being sold at a discounted price to support this campaign. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.
