Hokkaido is the largest island in northern Japan and home to some of the cutest animals you can find on earth.
Today we invite you to get acquainted with the seven most cute of them. Some are subspecies of more common animals, while others are unique species found only in this part of the world. But all of them are united by the fact that they are just outrageously cute!
If you are in Japan, be sure to make a trip to the island of Hokkaido — it is rich not only in cute animals, but also in stunning landscapes and rich culture.
The cute Ezo momonga is a species of flying squirrel found only on the island of Hokkaido.
Her big dark eyes and small paws are so pretty that she has become a local mascot, which can be seen on postcards and travel passes.
This is a subspecies of the long-tailed tit, which lives only in Hokkaido. Unlike its northern relative, it does not have brown "eyebrows" — its face is completely white.
Red Fox Hokkaido
This is a subspecies of the common red fox, but all foxes are real beauties, so we couldn't help but post this cute one here.
The common squirrel is distributed almost all over the world, and Hokkaido is no exception.
But Hokkaido is the only place in Japan where you can meet a squirrel in the wild.
Ezo naki usagi
A crying rabbit from the island of Hokkaido — this is about how you can translate the name of this tiny animal.
This is a local subspecies of the northern pika-a stunning animal that lives in the northern part of Japan.
They say that this cute animal inspired the authors of "Pokemon" to create Pikachu.
The lesser weasel belongs to a subspecies that prefers the northern climate of Hokkaido, Siberia and the northern part of Scandinavia. Unlike other subspecies of weasel, the skin of this animal turns white in winter, which allows it to hide from predators.
It is a local subspecies of the long-tailed owl.
