Very informative and useful blog you have for Japan!
Want to seek your help on maiden trip to Hokkaido in late Nov and Early Dec.
If just be in Hokkaido for 7 days, is it necessary to drive or take train to Sapporo and Hakodate with 2 young kids? And if driving, rental car can be picked up at Sapporo City? As I want to explore the city before driving towards Hakodate.
Then my dilemma is that my to and return flight will be at Chitosan airport. So I have to drive from Hakodate way back to Chitosan?
What is your suggested itinerary if I want to include a 1 or 2 night stay at ski resort or onsen ryokan?
