Thread: hokkaido (winter or spring?)

    Default hokkaido (winter or spring?)

    Hi there.

    Since there are many frequent travelers here. Got a coupe of questions to ask for a trip.

    I'm planning on going to hokkaido, preferbably between jan to feb next year. Understand it will still be covered with snow.

    Besides skiing which I wanna go, are there any other actii can do during the winter periods? And are the national parks open? How's the scenery?

    Would like spring time be a better choice? (My main priority is skiing)

    What's the cheapest way to travel to hokkaido from toyko or osaka? Jal and ana flights are ex. Any cheaper 1s?
