Description

WINTER WONDERLAND OF HOKKAIDO

Join us on a journey through a winter wonderland and experience the unique culture of Hokkaido, Japan.

During this 10-day workshop we will explore more or less the entire island. We will capture the true winter beauty of Hokkaido. Focusing on minimalistic winter scenes, amazing snowy landscapes around the lakes, coastal scenes, fishing villages and endless other options.

While we do this we will enjoy ourselves as much as possible and stay in the nicest hotels we could find. Some of them have private onsens in each room. Those who arent familiar with onsens, these are geothermal natural hot springs. Its incredibly comfortable and an experience in its own. Food is amazing, the culture is so fascinating and when we arent out taking landscapes i higly recommend walking around and taking in the entire experience.
