Hokkaido Winter Travel Ask

Hi Queen Bee,

Nice to meet you, this is Charly from Malaysia. It’s our pleasure to have seen your post when we planning for our Hokkaido trip. We’re now planning a Hokkaido 7D5N trip and we hope to get some advices from you. 🙂

This is our first time to Hokkaido and we have never see snow or skiing before. This will be 7 days 5 nights trip from January 13th to 19th, 2018 next year, just me and my husband (2 persons). We plan to rent a car to drive ourselves throughout the trip.

May I know what do you think of our Itinerary:

Day 1: 14/1/18 (Sun) 9:00AM arrived at Shin Chitose Airport – Noboribetsu – Date Jidaimura – Jigokudani (Hell Valley) <stay in Noboribetsu>

Day 2: 15/1/18 (Mon) Lake Toya – Mt Usuzan – Bear Ranch  – onsen <stay in Noboribetsu/ stay in one of the Ryokan> 

Day 3: 16/1/18 (Tues) Skiing in Niseko <stay in Niseko>

Day 4: 17/1/18 (Wed) Otaru – Canal – Odori Park  <stay in Sapporo>

Day 5: 18/1/18 (Thu) Sapporo – Branded Factory Outlet <stay in Airport Hotel>

Day 6: 19/1/18 (Sat) 9:00AM return car & back to KL

This is just my first draft of Itinerary & do you think I should replace some of the places above with perhaps:

– Lake Akan/ Lake Mashu

– Tokachi (snow view)

– Hakodate Hill (night view)

`Should we drive from day 1 to day 6 and returning car to the airport? Or we take public transport in Sapporo stay instead? Can recommend us some of the cheapest car rental?

`Any nice & affordable hotel recommended for our stay stated above?

`Which Ryokan with onsen is nice and reasonable price to stay a night?

`Where to ski for your recommend for first timer who need to rent ski equipment? Niseko or Rusutsu?

`Any nice Hokkaido crab or seafood market place to eat?

Thank you very much for your time and we are much appreciated for your help & recommendations! We look forward to hearing from you 🙂
