Hakkaido Itinerary in late Dec

Jump to last reply

Me and my family (2 adults and 2 children) will be visiting Hokkaido for 7 days staring Dec 18.

We are budget travelers. We wish to enjoy the first winter time we have (see snow for the first time). We do not plan to go skiing as it is too costly. We enjoy onsen. We are not really into shopping.

As it is winter time, I need advice on tourist spots to visit and things to do.

Dec 18 - We will arrive Chitose airport and travel by train to Hakodate. Expect to check in hotel by 3pm and visit Mt. Hakodate in the evening. Is it too cold to go Hakodate after 4pm? What is the last bus going up?

Dec 19 - Tour around Hakodate. Not sure whether it will be too cold to visit the churches and parks. Another option is day trip to Onuma Park.

Dec 20 - Hakodate to Noboribetsu. It will be 2pm by the time we check into the hotel in the hot spring area. That leave us 2 hours of day time to walk around hot spring area and hell valley. Doable???

Dec 21 - Visit Bear Park and Ainu Village. Or shall we visit Lake Toya??? Is Lake Toya still scenic during winter?

Dec 22 - Noboribetsu to Sapporo. Half day Sapporo city tour.

Dec 23 - Day trip to Otaru.

Dec 24 - Tour Sapporo.

Dec 25 - Going home.

I need advice on a place in or near Sapporo where my kids can play with the snow.

Also, any ideas on things to do after the sun set will be appreciated.

Thank you.
