Karl Mibbuck posted a question in Questions & AnswersHello My gf and I are thinking about visiting Japan next winter. We do want to go to Tokyo as we have a friend there, but are tempted by Hokkaido too for the snowboarding. I see there is a bullet train up to Hokkaido. If we have a JR ticket will that be the best choice or should we plane it up there? Always feel that airports and flights involve a lot of hassle but not sure what the +/- would be. Any tips would be great!
