Hokkaido is full of extraordinary waterways, from expansive pristine lakes to wild rivers. Finding information on these waterways in English, particularly ones suited to multi-day touring trips, is quite the task - hence our motivation to write them up. Our plan is to spend the next three years documenting well-established Hokkaido canoe touring routes (see them here), and we'll be following the advice found in a number of Japanese guidebooks (see them here).

We’re in the process of documenting, in English, around 50 established river and lake touring routes in Hokkaido. We’re not pioneers or first-descenters here. There are a number of guidebooks in Japanese that beautifully document these routes in minute detail. We’re just following their lead. 

In the meantime, we can’t recommend the amazing work of HokkaiCamp.com enough. Their information is in Japanese, but they’ve produced great route files nicely annotated with rapids, put in locations etc. Check them out.
