Summer in Japan Summed up

In July we had a wonderful time in Japan. This was our second 2.5 weeks trip to Japan and for this trip our focus was on summer festivals (Narita & Sawara) and summer flowers and nature in Hokkaido. Like our first time in Japan we opted to self drive so that we could cover more destinations at a comfortable pace, within a reasonable budget and an enjoyable level of comfort.

Our travel plan consisted of two parts, part 1 in Narita and part 2 in Hokkaido
