A few important things to remember for Hokkaido Driving:

1. Non-expressway driving can be very slow because the roads are mainly one-lane and pass through small towns and villages, mountains and depending on the season you are often sharing the road with farm machines that travel slowly and block the way.

2. Winter driving conditions can be tough and longer. Dangerous.

3. In central and east Hokkaido there are not so many gas stations, and many close at 5 or 6 pm in small villages.

Happy driving!
