We didn't score the weather we wanted to and I broke a pole about 30 seconds into the first day so I had to use sticks for the remainder of the trip. But it was well worth it and such a rad experience to view a little more of japan! Stayed in a flash 14 story hotel in Asahikawa, from there we explored around Tokachidake and Asahidake Which are two of the Highest peaks in Hokkaido!
