Self-Drive - Niseko, Hokkaido (Autumn 2017)

Hello once again! This is a mini-continuation from the previous self-drive trip to Onuma and Lake Toya.

Niseko is the most famous ski resort in Japan, known for having tons of light powder snow and it is one of the best winter adventure spot in Japan! But wait.. It isn't winter yet. It's only autumn! Not to worry here.. Niseko has it's own beauty during autumn too!!

I've decided to visit Niseko the next day after Lake Toya. The weather is cold despite the fact that it is still autumn! 

Niseko is located just 40km away from Lake Toya and driving there from Lake Toya will take probably just an hour with no toll charges. This trip to Niseko is just a short drop-by and some sight-seeing before returning.

The Niseko View Plaza offers the best locally grown vegetable in Niseko. There is also a variety of food you'll be able to find and have there, that are made with locally produced ingredients. The Niseko Cheese Cake is nice!! Similarly, this place is filled with pumpkins as well for the Halloween.
You'd also be able to see Mount Yotei from here!
