Day 5 : Niseko Transferred to Hilton today. On the way there, tried to have lunch at Raku-ichi but they were closed for the day. Hilton is a self contained resort with golf, skiing, walks and even a little "town".

Day 3 : Otaru Day trip to Otaru to check out the canal and Otaru glassware. Renting a car in Hokkaido during the summer is a perfect solution!!
Day 3 : Niseko Wet day so had a late breakfast at the soba place near the apartment.

Day 1 Arrival at Sapporo. Drove to our Akazora in Niseko, but not before a soft serve at a stop. After dropping our bags, we returned the rental at Kutchan and biked back. The ride is too long and we will have to pick ip the car again tomorrow for the rest of the trip. Akazora is a great place. Niseko is wonderfully deserted in June.
