I am planning to do a trip in Hokkaido May 8 to May 16 and was planning on
2 nights in Biei - May 10 and 11
1 night in Ashidake Onsen - May 12
I was reading some older post and seems like the ropeway at Ashidake Onsen is closed that time, is there other things to do in Ashidake Onsen then? Or should I move to Sounkyo Onsen?
For Biei, seems like there are commnents that there is nothing to see around that time...is it true? I thought there are some other kinds of flowers besides Lavender in mid May?
By the way I am planning to drive Ashidake Onsen to Akano in a day so that I can stay longer in the same hotel instead of changing hotel every other night...is that doable. The Youth Hostel said it is 6 hours drive
