Itinerary recommendations

Hakodate, the most southern city of Hokkaido. During the day you can enjoy some of the finest fish from the local harbour, visit the star shaped Fort Goryokaku, then go up the ropeway of Mt. Hakodate for one of the finest night views in Japan.
Otaru, this small harbour town lies just 30 minutes west of Sapporo. Great for a day trip and some of the freshest Sashimi you’ll ever taste!
Furano, view the endless rolling fields of lavender and try some of the local lavender based delicacies.
