Takikawa city is located halfway between Asahikawa and Sapporo along Route 12. Takikawa is conveniently situated at the point at which the Ishikari River, Japan's 3rd longest river, merges with the Sorachi River, making Takikawa a sought after destination for all manner of water sports.

Takikawa City is the biggest city in the Sorachi County and relies primarily on agriculture as its major source of income with rapeseed (Canola) the most visually obvious of the city's agricultural endeavours. There are several other tourist activities to be enjoyed in Takikawa, though most have not yet been effectively marketed.

Visitors are able to enjoy the above-mentioned water sports (water skiing, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing), as well as plenty of non-river related activities like golf, park golf, camping, and gliding.

Takikawa is not in itself a stand-alone tourism destination yet, but is a conveniently short day trip from either Sapporo or Asahikawa. With a good bit a planning and time management, you should be able to find plenty to do.
