Thread: hokkaido tour self drive

  1. #1

    Default hokkaido tour self drive

    i'm thinking of taking a break.hence, planning on a nearby country tour.

    i want to bring my 5 months old niece on a self drive tour, (her mum coming along of course).
    need some feedbacks/advises.
    i would love to photograph her in a overseas setting.

    1)is it advisable to bring a 5 month on a free and easy self drive?

    2)has anyone done this tour with prime tours?(it's a 9 days tour).please share your experience.

    all replies appreciated.

    don't you think a japanese company organising a tour of japan would be better than a local company?

    After all it is their country, did you see their book, lots of nice pictures
    if going soon, best to go during autumn
    if can wait then wait for spring, the fields will be full of flowers

    where's the book?i didnt see wor.
    i went to natas last year and remembered them.
    and i only go FnE tours, so they are best for me.

    question is, is bringing a 5month old okay?i'm really worried on one hand but i would really love to do a portraiture for her on the other.

    plan to go in october.

    You are absolutely OUT OF YOUR MIND to being a 5 months old baby on a trip, let alone a driving trip. With mother of not, it's insane!

    That said, Hokkaido is very drivable, and the seafood is fantastic.

    heat pack will not help the baby. you might as well bring the ICU unit that they use in the hospitals for her.
