The initial plan was New Zealand South Island. But during the planning, NZ blew my budget. Hence, I settled for a cheaper holiday though not less wonderful: Hokkaido. Having loved my previous trip to Japan, any reason to go back is a good reason to go back. So it didn't take me long to settle on this place.
Being the advanced planner I am, my itinerary was pretty much set in December. I've only decided to post it now, certain I won't make anymore significant changes to it. And with the current exchange rate (higher than my last Japan escapade), I've capped the budget at RM5500 - more on the complete budget and accommodation in future posts. For now, here's the itinerary.
