My husband and I are interested in a free and easy driving/scenic trip around Hokkaido next week. 1st time touring and driving around Japan - we'd like to take it easy, enjoy the drive and scenery, see/try some Hokkaido highlights and see some seasonal flowers.
Please suggest a 5-6 day itinerary around the Sapporo/Hokkaido area and some good mid-priced places to stay. We've looked at the tourism websites but it's hard to pick when we don't know much about touring in Hokkaido end of May.
This is a short runway to the holiday, and we don't want to spend too much time thinking and planning about it. It will help if there's helpful suggestions for an enjoyable-highlights driving tour of Hokkaido.
Thanks so much!
