    Locations you specified probably cater to differing market....Tokyo-Osaka with Disney and Universal appeals to those with children, Hokkaido may be catering towards more matured tourists...anyway would be going to Tokyo Osaka in November with my kids....

    how abt u combine a package tour in hokkaido with free n easy in tokyo, ask for the language issue , u can use the camera to take photos of wat u need n seek out assistance.

    my lady friends when to tokyo with no japan knowledge n survive for 3 days,
    they took photos of
    where they stay
    which stations they need to go
    where they want to go
    n wat food they would like to eat.

    Try to see if you can book a hokkaido with return flight extension + a tokyo/osaka land tour package. Try CTC. I've got good experience with them for my Tokyo/Osaka tour. However, my experience with Chan Bros for Hokkaido was quite terrible. Don't think I'll ever book another package with Chan Bros again unless I have no other choices. I will also try not to book with other agencies who are only resellers.

    I have been there on May07.
    I booked with CTC and then with extension stays in Tokyo for 4 night. I booked and stayed in shinjuku washington through asiatravel.com

    Shinjuku is a busy and exciting area, where there lot of electronics stuff there...most importantly, I bought my 70-300VR there @ MapCamera.

    I don't find food to be expensive in Tokyo, it's all a matter of knowing where to eat. Language is also not a problem, if you can read chinese, you will be fine. If you need to talk to the people there, most of them will understand you to a degree if you articulate properly i.e. slowly and clearly.

    you can book a travel package to tokyo and get your singapore travel agent to arrange transfer you to hokkaido to join either another of their singapore incoming hokkaido group or with whatever tour group itinerary the hokkaido agent can put you on. if the latter, request for english speaking guide and most likely you will join one with westerners.

    since you mentioned your kids are going, i would suggest hokkaido than tokyo to end the trip with disneyland memories.

    have a nice trip.
