Hokkaido is the northernmost of Japan's four main islands. Hokkaido is dominated by its climate and geography with long winters and mild summers. Hokkaido was the last part of Japan to be developed and populated by main stream Japanese population, with Japan's aboriginal Ainu race having lived in the area for thousands of years. Hokkaido features many great national parks, agricultural areas and ski fields. Hokkaido has a look and feel which is distinctly different from the other three main island of Japan, with no ancient temples and shrines, and an architecture which is more similar to northern America or Europe to help cope with the cold winters.
