Destination Tokachi,Inc


Located in the southeastern region of Hokkaido, Tokachi boasts incredible sceneries surrounded by untouched nature composed of Daisetsuzan National Park, Akan National Park, and Hidaka Sanmyaku-Erimo Quasi-national Park. The Tokachi river system, which flows out of the deep mountain wilderness of these national parks, is widely admired as the mecca of trout fishing in Japan.


There are various species of trout, salmon, and char thriving together in this Tokachi area: native species like hucho perryi, chum salmon, cherry salmon, yamame, white spotted char and dolly varden; and non-native species like rainbow trout and brown trout. Most of them are beautiful wild species and reproduce naturally by themselves. We strongly recommend catch and release for all these species to sustain this well-balanced natural ecosystem.



The attraction of staying in Tokachi is not limited to fishing activities. Tokachi is also known as Hokkaido's major agricultural area and is commonly referred to as the "Food Valley" of Japan, and offers various kinds of high-quality foods like Tokachi beef steak and desserts created with local dairy products. The area also has the Tokachigawa Hot Springs, known for their global scarce, high-quality moor hot springs.

Experience a wonderful fishing trip in the majestic nature while enjoying delicious meals and the soothing natural hot springs. We ensure that you can enjoy these many attractions of Tokachi during your stay.
