My family is planning to go to Hokkaido sometime in early Dec, however would need some advice from fellow forumers:
1. Is Dec a good time to go Hokkaido? We don't ski, so besides skiing what else is interesting there?
2. Intend to stay aboue 8-9 days, what is the best route of visit? Looks like trip will start from Sapporo and move out to cities/ towns and back to Sapporo.
3. What is recommended mode of transport hopping from cities to cities? Is renting car of travelling by train better option?
4. If we drop the idea of going to Hokkaido altogther, where else is good to explore in Japan e.g. around Tokyo/ Osaka vicinity? Anyway, we intend to stopever in Tokyo for a few days after Hokkiado before retunring to Singapore.
