    Snowboarding in Hokkaido

    by His_Beloved Written Jul 13, 2004

    If you live in Japan and want to visit Hokkaido for some winter fun, a local travel agent can help you find a packaged deal to fit anyone's budget. Five friends and I went to Hokkaido for five days and our travel agent found us a deal that cost us less than $400 for domestic flight and lodging per person, and that's cheap for Japan!
