TRIP REPORT - 9D TOKYO/HOKKAIDO DRIVE
 
Hi all,

Here to share my itinerary and experience to those who will be visiting Japan in the next few weeks.

Weather in Tokyo was pretty cooling at the start but it started raining for the last few days in Tokyo. I guess it's rainy season or something. It is VERY humid. Short sleeves are ok but do bring a jacket out as it can be quite cold especially when the wind blow.

Weather in Hokkaido was rainy and cloudy for more than half of our stay there. It was a pity as we didn't visit Unkai Terrace (Sea Clouds) as the probability of occurrence was only 30%, probably because of the rain.

Driving in Hokkaido - navigation was done solely on Google Maps (pretty awesome and convenient provided that you rented a mobile wifi). Got mine sponsored from Ninja Wifi. Don't think it's the cheapest option out there but it is definitely reliable and convenient (airport pick up and return) and has no data limit. Mobile WIFI is recommended if you're traveling with 3 or more friends, cheaper than each person owning a data sim.

Language Barrier was pretty bad in Hokkaido. There was a hotel which told us "no english" when we called to tell them that we will arrive late =/ Eating in restaurants at the outskirts was bad too. Menu was in full Japanese and we could only identify the few kanji characters. The dishes came as a surprise as we basically ordered "Chicken" "Pork" and "Udon" or said whatever random words they could understand =p Quite an experience..

Visited Shiretoko and attended the 5 lakes tour which was very beautiful but we were not lucky enough to see any bears. Only paw and scratch marks. Do note that reservation with a registered guide is required during high season for bears. Otherwise, you are only allowed to visit 1 lake.

Lake Akan and the Marimo was very disappointing. We thought that you will be able to see Marimos in the lake but all we saw after taking going for the 90 minute cruise ride was Marimos in a fish tank. Wasn't really worth the 1,900Y ride as it was rainy that day.

Visited Mt Asahidake and it was really nice to see snow/ice in July! Portions of the walking trails were covered by snow and they recommended us to rent the boots.

Flowers in July - only Lavender and other less popular flowers. Sunflowers not in bloom yet. Visited the all-so-famous Farm Tomita but it was a little too touristy (bus loads of tourist) for us and we didn't really enjoy it. You are not allowed to walk through the flower fields as well.. pretty disappointing.

Must try - melon fruit slice (price range between 230Y to 350Y depending on where you are)

Must go - Lake Toya and stay in the most expensive resort - Lake View Nonokaze. Service is 100%, onsen is rooftop open air "infinity pool" feel. Dinner and Breakfast spread was damn good.

Will blog with more details in time to come..

Feel free to ask any questions!

I only tried out the docomo 7-days data card before. Bought it off taobao and it worked fine on my iphone. If I'm not wrong, they have a 15-days data card too. Haven't tried the other brands.

I do see machines selling data sim in the airport as well. If you're flying in from Haneda, there's 1-2 machines near the Keiyu train entrance. Price wise might be about 3,000+Y if I'm not wrong.

Not sure if you guys already know.. It is better to fly in/out from Haneda Airport.

Shared some tips on buying tax-free items too.. There's no checking of items at the customs of Haneda Airport (July 2015).

read ur post on haneda vs narita.


there are other options for traveling from Narita to Tokyo other than those u listed. for example, Keisei Skyliner goes to Ueno for 2470yen in 45min, and Keisei main line cost 1030yen and takes about 90min. these could be significant when deciding which airport to choose.


there is also discounted tickets and passes for consideration. for example, NEX round trip ticket is 4000yen.

Hello, we spent 7 days 6 nights in Hokkaido and the rental cost about $1,000 for a Nissan MPV and petrol/tolls/parking was about $340 and mileage clocked was 1,635km. We had 4 people.

Hope this info helps.

just to let you know in NRT,

1. luggage lockers of various sizes are abundant and they are also strategically located near the mobile wifi rental booth. and train station is just a lift or escalator ride away.
in fact, at 500yen for the large size locker, it is 100yen cheaper than in HND. :D
http://i58.tinypic.com/29bmxqo.jpg

2. i don't know how exactly their duty free inspection works in japan because we were also informed by the airline staffs that we can check-in ALL our tax-free purchases into our checked luggage.

so those 2 points that were highlighted in your blog are not unique to only HND. :)

how much per night?

anyhowsaysay 13-09-2015 07:19 PM

I read the blog, Japan custom at least for me never check for tax free etc.

I normally check in all my items in my luggage and only hand carry camera stuff

I doubt any custom will do it (Check to see the tax free status)

anyhowsaysay 13-09-2015 07:20 PM

The next day, we suddenly realised that we were all flying back to Singapore on different dates and timing and that if the customs officer check our items at the airport, we are kind of screwed if not all items are present. -> This part never ever ever check.

edit. I also check in all my items in my luggage, nv kenna check for tax free items too at both haneda and narita

yep we attempted to google about this customs checking thing but there were very few useful information online. anyway, i eventually asked the airport staff + experienced it myself.

Moving forward, we will never know if the govt might one day discover the loophole..

Glad that you like my entries:)

Yes japan is a beautiful place. Can't wait for my next chance to visit japan again! Hopefully it will be Okinawa or Fukuoka area.

I was a little sad about not being able to dine inside the pop-up cafe as I visited it on a saturday and the queue line was horrendously long =( Bought the take-away donuts as a consolation.

Hi there, you can read more about my drive itinerary here: http://www.flyhoneystars.com/2015/07...ive-july-2015/

ITINERARY IN HOKKAIDO
Day 3
New Chitose Airport (Sapporo) – Hotel AreaOne Obihiro – dinner

(Day 4 was supposed to start off with a 3:30am drive to see Unkai Terrace at Hoshino Resort Tomaru but we met with an expressway closure (only open at 6am) and if we took the alternative route, we would be late for Unkai. Moreover, the probability of sighting was only 30%. We ended up driving back to our hotel after a loop)

Day 4
Obihiro – Kushiro Crane Park – Lake Akan (not worth going) – Hotel Kifu Club Shiretoko

Day 5
Shiretoko Five Lakes Tour (guided tour reservations required during summer) – Sounkyo – Hotel Asahidake Deer Valley

Day 6
Takasago Sake Brewery (under renovation but sake-tasting and shop still available) – Otokoyama Sakezukuri Museum – Asahikawa Ramen Village – Mt Asahidake (Ropeway)

Day 7
Patchwork Road – Blue Pond – Farms Chiyoda (Beef Stew) – Rollercoaster/Panorama Road – Farm Tomita – Yuiga-Dokuson (Omu Curry) – Cross Hotel Sapporo – Susukino (Pachinko + Ramen Street)
