The Express - Anne Gorringe
Amongst Anne Gorringe's ten hot destinations for 2016 is Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island and one of the least visited areas of the country. This is despite its manifold charms - including rugged mountain scenery, hot springs, remote national parks and beautiful, misty lakes. The new bullet train line linking the mainland of Honshu with Hokkaido will be opened in spring 2016, making Hokkaido more accessible - and attractive - to tourists.
