Help - Self drive plan in Hokkaido!

Jump to last reply

Hello, Here's the driving plan I came up with . Holidaying in Hokkaido (first time!) with wife and 2 kids, 7 and 9 years old in June. 14 days. Wanted to limit driving per day to max of 3 hours as the kids may get restless. What do you think about my plan :

Day 1 (Sun) 120pm Land in Kushiro. Pick up car rental and head to Akan Natl Park.
Day 2 Explore Akan NP
Day 3 Drive to Utoro, Shiretoko , leaving after lunch
Day 4 Explore Shiretoko
Day 5 More from Utoro to Shari, gateway to Shiretoko
Day 6 Drive from Shari to Abashiri.after lunch
Day 7 8am, Drive from Abashiri to Sounkyu, Daisetsuzan NP.
Day 8 Explore Daisetsuzan
Day 9 Drive from Sounkyu to Asahikawa, after lunch
Day 10 Drive from Asahikawa to Furano
Day 11 Explore Furano, Biei. Head to Sapporo before night
Day 12 Sapporo
Day 13 Sapporo
Day 14 (Sat) Sapporo. Fly out at 830pm

Other questions :
1. Are the traveling distances per day reasonable ? My biggest concern is drive from Abashiri to Sounkyu. Should I split that up somehow ?
2. Am I spending too much time in one place ? Such as in Akan / Shiretoko / Daisetsuzan ?
3. Is 3 days in Sapporo too much ? Should I cut that to 2 days and stretch the driving schedule longer before heading to Sapporo ?

Thank you!!

Eric B
