10 days self drive in Hokkaido


Recommended Posts

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.

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.
