About Asahikawa

Asahikawa is the central city in northern Hokkaido, influential in industry and commerce. Strikingly, Asahikawa is a city of bridges. You'll find about 130 rivers and streams including the Ishikari River and Chubetsu River, and over 740 bridges in the city. The Asahibashi, a bridge crossing Ishikari River, has been one of the symbols of Asahikawa and is registered as one of the Hokkaido Heritage sites. Every winter, the Asahikawa Winter Festival is held on the bank of the Ishikari River. If you love cold weather travel and skiing, this is the place. In fact on January 25, 1902, a weather station here recorded −41 °C (−41.8 °F), the lowest temperature in Japanese history.
