Went with Chan Brothers to Hokkaido in a group of 30.
I had been to Hokkaido but it was in the winter during Sapporo Snow Festival in Feb 1995.
This time it was in the summer. Weather was good at max 28°C.
Though Lavender was still not fully blossomed yet, we managed to see its beauty.
Hotels were good especially those Japanese style ryokan provided good hot spring bath and good traditional Japanese meal.
I really enjoyed the food in this trip. Kobe beef, Hokkaido crab, Otoro, Sushi, Hokkaido Ramen and etc.
Not much to shop in Hokkaido but we did well in Tokyo.
We extended our trip in Tokyo for 4 days 3 nights. Stayed in Sunroute Shinjuku. It was just opposite the South Gate of Shinjuku JR station, very convenient.
We arrived in Tokyo on Saturday morning. Started shopping immediately upon arrival. Shinjuku, Harajuku and Shibuya were packed with shoppers on Saturday and Sunday.
Also had a hair cut in Harajuku.
It was a great trip.
