66 Fantastic Color Photos Captured Everyday Life of Hokkaido during the 1960s

Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan, the largest and northernmost prefecture. It is known for volcanoes and natural hot springs. The weather is harsh in winter with lots of snowfall, below zero temperatures and frozen seas, while in summer it does not get as hot and humid as in the other parts of the country.

But with its unspoiled nature, Hokkaido attracts many outdoor lovers, including skiers and snowboarders in the colder seasons and hikers, cyclists and campers from June to September.

Here below is an awesome collection of color photos capturing everyday life in Hokkaido during the 1960s.
