I have never been to Japan before and this time going to Hokkaido is quite an eye opener for me. I planned the whole trip on my own with the help of information found online. Was quite stressful because I have never been there and have totally no idea of where to start the trip.
First time being to Hokkaido, I found out that Hokkaido is a really great place with : –
- great weather during summer
- friendly & courteous locals
- awesome beautiful nature
- clean environment & fresh air (I hardly see any garbage can along the street but yet the street are 90% clean)
- and awesome food!! (I miss the seafood rice bowl already) 😭
For this time round (a 9D8N) trip, I only manage to cover the southern part of Hokkaido. Hokkaido itself is actually a huge place and definitely need a few more trips to cover the whole Hokkaido. And not only that, Hokkaido is a really beautiful place which worth to be visited for every season. Different season will be a different kind of beauty.
The most memorable event for this trip will be visiting Mount Uzusan where we walked a few miles and climbed 600 steps. And also the night where we almost frozen due to the rain and sudden drop of temperature.
It was a great trip overall and great experience of the Japan culture. I can’t wait to be back to Hokkaido again.
