When traveling across Japan, you will find regional traditions and differences both big and small, offering a unique tapestry of traditional performing arts and all sorts of long-established customs. In Hokkaido, you can go beyond mere cultural differences and learn about one of Japan's indigenous peoples: the Ainu, with their own language and unique religion.
