We are doing a self-driving trip in Hokkaido this summer, and are considering different routes. This is the second week of a two-week Japan trip. We are spending the first week in Tokyo.
So far, it seems flying Tokyo- Chitose is way cheaper than any other airport in Hokkaido. Also, we don't want a car for more than 5 days, to save some money. So here is what we have so far:
Day 1: Chitose to Kushiro
Day 2: Kushiro to Abashiri
Day 3: Abashiri to Asahikawa
Day 4: Day trips to Furano and Biei from Asahikawa
Day 5: Asahikawa to Sapporo
Then two days in Sapporo.
Any feedback, advise, and recommendations would be greatly appreciated. We really have no idea about lodging for this trip, so any advise on that would be particularly helpful.
