    Niseko United - Yokubari pack

    This could well be the case! Even a picture of the actual final item to select would be incredibly helpfull so I could just show that! Didn't expect it to be such an issue last time, and had the next best thing (Japanese webpage on my phone) but to not much avail. I'll take printouts this time as well. I'm staying at the first cabin in Kutchan this time round, which has a Lawson on-site, which gives me some more time to go and explore the loppi machine without my wife complaining she's freezing
  2. Going to Hokkaido again this year after our first trip last year. When we were in Niseko, some days we were happy with only an 8-hour pass, so the Yokubari pack was a good deal: https://www.niseko.ne.jp/en/lift/otoku/ However, the main issue we had was getting these, we tried a few convenience stores, and basically no one understood what I actually wanted when pointing at the website on my phone. That is except for one employee at the Gran Hirafu Lawson who could work the Loppi-machine to spit these out ;) Is there anyone on here that could explain me how to get these from the Loppi machine myself, or at least what I should ask for in the convenience stores? (Because "Yokubari pack" doesn"t seem to be the magic password.)
