    The trip was so-so. The other reviews were right. You spend more time in the bus than the sites. Nothing spectacular with the sites except the last one where we rode the lift up the mountain. That one was worth it. Plus, it is very hard when the guide doesn’t speak even a little English. Considering most who take that tour are foreigners. The food/lunch was filling though
  • Xiangyun Stephanie 18 Dec 2018
    Easy to find the pickup point, but overall trip was too rush..
  • Samuel 18 Dec 2018
    Miss the bus due to can’t find the meet up point.. searching for almost 20min.. at last only late by 5min.. see the bus depart but can’t do anything.. so sad..
  • Peck Kuan 17 Dec 2018
    It’s an excellent and awesome experience! I love the nice day tour despite the very cold temperature then.
  • shao Jie Kenneth 15 Dec 2018
    Good day trip to lake shikotsu and lake toya. Allocated time is just nice.
  • Phaik Li 15 Dec 2018
    Very great arrangement and the food is nice n worthy. Scenery was nice & highly recommend
  • MEI SIANG 14 Dec 2018
    The tour was not bad as the tour guide is very friendly and professional. We were lucky that the weather quite ok with unblock view at each stop which is good. However the time given is quite short especially we were with elder and kids, we were super concern with the time at each stop and therefore not able to really enjoy the most. we also didn’t make it to visit the bear ranch after the Ropeway ride as we left with around 15-20 min which is too short. The lunch setting was suppose to be quite nice with nice lake view, but the food served was extremely cold, salmon was so hard and chawamusi is weird with layer of jelly like on the top. But the chicken soup is quite good. Anyway the tour is actually not bad and recommended for those able to visit each stop in quicker pace. For those with elder or prefer to have more time at each stop might want to reconsider according to individual fitness & preference
  • ERN YU 14 Dec 2018
    Well organize itinerary. However, time given to explore the tourist spot is rather short. Lunch is abit cold as I guess it was prepared long before we arrive.
  • Jason 14 Dec 2018
    A hassle free way to spend the day. Some of the most beautiful sites in Hokkaido. Includes lunch and transportation.
  • Lay See 12 Dec 2018
    quite a value for money tour which included a very nice lunch.
