Hokkaido Travel Guide by Aaron Jamieson Released For Winter

The first-ever dedicated English language guide book to Hokkaido is published and due to be released globally on November 1st, 2022.

My Hokkaido is a hard-cover book written by local Niseko resident Aaron Jamieson and published by Tuttle Publishing, Japan’s largest publisher of English language books.

It’s a comprehensive guide to Hokkaido through the eyes of a local and is based on Aaron’s interpretation of Hokkaido’s hidden secrets and must-see spots.

Aaron said the title comes from his own experience, without pretense.

“This is ‘My Hokkaido’ and everything that Hokkaido has given to me that I hope to share with visitors in the future.

“My sincere hope is that this book helps visitors get the most out of their visit to this wonderful part of Japan – still one of the hidden gems of Asia,” he said.

The publication is the culmination of five years of research, writing and design, along with two decades of exploring Hokkaido.

Commissioned in 2017, Aaron said he poured every ounce of his love for the island into the guide, a love born from his personal exploration of the island and intimate local knowledge.

My Hokkaido retails for ¥2300+tax and will be stocked in bookshops worldwide and available for purchase online through Amazon.

Locally it will be available in selected shops and at AJ Gallery at the Hirafu traffic lights.
