Hello! My name is Miyahara. I live in Chiba, too. Last summer, I suddenly felt like travelling by train. From my childhood I have always longed to travel by train,
So I decided to go to Hokkaido by myself. Hokkaido is the biggest island on the north end of Japan. Hokkaido is known for having a lot of wild nature. The vast wilderness of Hokkaido has always been enchanting to the young people of urban Japan.
I traveled for 5 days.
The 1st day at 5:00, I took the train near my home, reading books, looking at the scenery, sleeping, not doing anything important, and just passing time. By the end of the day, I reached Hachinohe, which is still in mainland Japan.
The 2nd day, I took the rapid train "Kaikyou". We came out of the Seikan tunnel (an under-sea tunnel) and there was Hokkaido! It was a little after 21:00. The 3rd day and the 4th day, I visited many towns in Hokkaido.I was most impressed by the racehorse farms. I saw horses that were champions in the Horse Park at one time. . In Hokkaido there are many farms like this. I stayed at a Youth Hostel. So the cost was very cheap. But it is pity that my schedule was very tight. I tried to see and do too much. If I had more time, I would have stopped at many more towns and relaxed more. From my experience, I would strongly recommend to you to plan a more relaxed trip. You could buy two or three Seishunn18Kippu and enjoy a longer, more leisurely trip.
