We are planning a winter trip to hokkaido in mid dec. It will be our 2nd trip to hokkaido. We are thinking of doing the route that u recommended:
Day 1: Chitose to tomamu
Day 2: Tomamu
Day 3: tomamu to obihiro via train. Then shuttle bus to hanayuuka hotel
Day 4: lake Akan
Day 5: Akan to sapporo via shuttle bus
Day 6 & 7: sapporo
As our trip is in mid Dec, is it worthwhile to travel all the down to Akan. What is there in Akan besides the lake & ainu village?
We are not driving, hence may not be able to access to some of the sights in Akan.
We are thinking whether should skip Akan & go to jozankei instead from sapporo. Can you share your views?
Thanks a lot!
