<About Obihiro and the Tokachi area>
Obihiro and the Tokachi area is the largest agricultural area in Hokkaido, where the original scenery of Hokkaido remains. The area is surrounded by scenic nature, including the Hidaka Mountains to the west and the 2000-meter-high Daisetsuzan Volcanic Group to the north, and these geographic advantages make Obihiro and the Tokachi area an ideal place to enjoy tourism in Hokkaido. Crops and livestock are well adapted to long summer days, similar to that of Europe, and fertile soil from volcanic ash is ideal for producing high-fat milk for cheese making. We hope you all have an irreplaceable experience, with gastronomic delights, scenery and activities in Obihiro and the Tokachi area, with these Hokkaido Tokachi Bus&Leisure Discount Ticket!
