We had our first trip to Japan in January. We knew about Hokkaido not specialising in steepness but we wanted to see Hokkaido, experience the snow and see the snow festival in Sapporo. So we did 6 days there and then came down to Nagano for 7 days making it a mash up of places. It proved to be a good mix and we're glad we planned it like that and experience the best of both. Loved Japan, can't wait to visit again next year and already making plans!
