hi: Need some advice.
Does anyone know the toll cost for Sapporo to (almost) Hakadote on the expressway? And the toll cost from near Hakadote (beginning of the expressway) to Chitose airport?
I'm thinking we do the semi-loop (so have a change of scenery plus save some toll fee), i.e. local road from Sapporo, then onto the expressway at Lake Toya side, then return to Chitose airport predominantly on the expressway, stopping at Noboribetsu onsen for a night.
Question: would the local road from Sapporo to Lake Toyo take more than 3 hours? Is this semi-loop advisable? We will be driving towards end March 2013. We had driven in Hokkaido March 2012 previously and enjoyed it very much.
