Hokkaido is an island in the northernmost of Japan and its aria is 83,456.58km2 consisting of the 22% of the total land area of Japan. As an island, Hokkaido is currently being the 21th largest islands in the world. There are many attractions of Hokkaido including four distinctive seasons, untouched majestic nature, and plenty of great food. Each season has its different characteristics, offering various scenery, activities and food, which have been drawing large number of visitors every year from both domestically and internationally.
So I visited Hokkaido to see biological impacts of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. Hokkaido is famous for ski and snowboard resort too. Because of luck of enough snow in Tokyo, they often visit there for skiing and snowboarding in the best powder snow.
People in Hokkaido are fine and I cannot find any impact of the accident there. People in Hokkaido have no worry about the accident, because it is far away from the site and there is no contamination by the accidents.
