Happen to chance upon your blog while trying to dig for more info for a self drive trip in Japan.
My family of 4 (with 2 teens) will be visiting Japan this December. We had been to Japan, but only moving around cities like Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto in public transport when kids were younger.
With more time to spend this year, we were thinking of doing a self drive tour around central Japan, starting and ending in Tokyo.
Places to visit include Matsumoto, Takayama, Shirakawago, Kanazawa, etc.
Do you think it is safe for us to drive to those places in early December?
Hoping to hear your comments.
