Went to Hokkaido recently and would like to share some photos here. Famous for its flower flied and winter sports during winter, August is end of the summer season I think. Weather wise still cooling average around 22 C with morning and evening dropping to below 18C. This trip I rented a 8 seater and total distance covered is approx 1400 Km. While the speed limit for city is 50 km/hr and highway 80 km/hr, to maintain at 80 km/hr on highway is not so easy.

 

Took Scoot from Singapore and transit at Taiwan (1 hour transit time) Good break but just enough time to get on the plane. Landed in Sapporo early morning. This is a short of their air port. nowhere near Changi T1 but there are buses you can catch to town. I booked Unizo Inn next to Sapporo Grand Hotel.


Checked in and walk to collect my car which I booked with Budget car rental. It is within walking distance. Photos of a street shot in Sapporo and their underground train station (MRT).

 

 


Beside flower and snow, Japan is also about food. 1st stop is their famous Furano Cheese factory. But, it is more like a cafe and their cakes.

When we are there on 23rd Aug, not many Lavender left. So that is a bit late. The weather keep changing, but spring should be fine I guess. However, there was a park Takino Suzuran Hillside Park we when, the lavender is growing well. I have photos which I will share. If you have children, they will also like the park, it is a nice park.
 

Stop by this place before via to Lake Shikotsu  and Houkusei Hill Observatory. Peaceful and nice Sunflowers.


The red bridge is called Sikotsu-Toya Nation Park.

Dun worry about posting multiple photos unless beyond system's capacity (only size per photo afaik).

But it is better to seperate your pics into smaller chunks per post to make it more reader friendly with descriptions. Or eles it will be just a huge wall of confusing pictures.

I was told July is the best time. When we visited on June, the flowers were not in full bloom yet, but you can see the patterns taking shape!

In summer, over at Lake Toya, they have fireworks for about 30 minutes every evening. So do book somewhere with a lake view. Otherwise, you can also drive to the lakeside to watch. Parking is free there.

 

Next day drive towards Hakodate via Yukamo rest stop. Here, those with children there is a indoor playground which is free. Nothing great but a good break.

 

At Hakodate, you get to visit the local morning market, drive up the observatory tower to see the city and the Red Brick Warehouse.
