■ Benefits of a camper

By taking a hotel and moving by a camper,


Without being bound by a place called a hotel,


I could go to various places in Hokkaido.


Also, by moving with a camper,


We were able to respond flexibly to sudden change of schedule.


What we do examine a lot


It is quite troublesome,


Rather than sightseeing


In my house with children who like activities


I went to various places with a camper,


The trip to experience is a huge success ♪

Benefits and cautions of camper travel

Well, based on Tirense experience

With the benefits of traveling with a camper

I would like to write a note.


Benefits of Campervan travel

Because the movement and residence are united with the camper

If you have a place to stop the car at the destination you can spend the night.


Also, keeping our children lying down that will not easily occur in the morning

It is very efficient because you can move to the next planned place.


In addition, we can respond flexibly to changes in schedule while traveling.


In fact, during my family trip this time, on the last day in the afternoon

Information entered that Typhoon 12 will land in Honshu.

For this reason, I changed the flight on the last day from afternoon flight to morning flight.

I changed the accommodation place on the last day from the campground in Sapporo to the road station in Chitose city.


From Chitose Road Station, move to the New Chitose Airport by Camper

As it is, take the camper at the parking lot on the morning airplane

I came back home.


It is tricky to take the children of Neboshi and get on an airplane in the morning

Although it is impossible in normal travel, you can move while sleeping

It becomes possible if it is a camper.



It is one of the charm of a camper which can do a carefree trip with no plan, but if you are going around Hokkaido in a limited number of days it is a point to set up a detailed schedule in advance.


It is a waste of time if you are searching each destination locally. Especially in the vast Hokkaido, the distance traveled between areas is long, so I want to eliminate wasted time as much as possible.


To do that, before studying, we will investigate and examine "what kind of camping place do you want to stay", "what sort of place you want to visit", "where and what you want to eat" beforehand, and prepare a detailed schedule beforehand Important. If there is a base schedule, it is possible to change the schedule flexibly at the site on the basis of it, and it is easy to deal with even if there is a trouble by any chance.


Preliminary survey and detailed planning are the secret to enriching Hokkaido's journey by the camper. Let's enjoy the Hokkaido camping car trip as much as I consider the time that I am planning Alecolle and plan before departure as one of the enjoyment of the trip.

■ Nature in Hokkaido



■ Activities in Hokkaido

Hokkaido is exactly a natural heaven. To make Hokkaido's journey with camper cars a "memorable trip" rather than just a "sightseeing tour", it is important to actively incorporate "experiences" that can taste nature in Hokkaido.


Taking advantage of the ropeway as a challenge for families as well as mountain climbing of Daisetsuyama Asahidake · Daisetsuyama Mt. Kurodake, trekking of Shiretoko Peninsula and Kushiro Marsh, Hokkaido has activities to enjoy in nature.


In addition to climbing and trekking, rafting down rushing such as Niseko's Shiribetsu River, Sorachi River of Minamifurano, Hidaka Rukawa etc. River kayak such as Kushiro River · Tokachi River, Kussharo Lake · Lake Shikotsu · Toyako · Bendo Lake canoes such as lakes, ice floe in Shiretoko / Abashiri, Horse trekking in Hidaka, etc. are experienced tours that can easily enjoy nature in various areas of Hokkaido. Outdoor beginners are advised to use such guided tours. If you actively incorporate nature experience, the trip will be more fulfilling.


Canoeing time to taste the tranquility on a beautiful water surface


If you want to enjoy the river and lake nature leisurely, canoeing is recommended. The canoe, which slides along the surface of the water as if sliding, can enjoy a unique tranquility while feeling a sense of unity with nature. You can enjoy it all year long if you have a cold weather protection, but the green season is attractive with the ease of experience you can experience in light clothing. Tours can be enjoyed even by young children if accompanied by parents. Outdoor guide considering safety is characterized by many tours that focus on emphasizing relaxing in nature, such as explaining birds and animals and enjoying tea time on the way.



Aim at the summit at your level and pace


If you enjoy the nature of Hokkaido slowly at your own pace, mountain climbing is recommended. Walking along the mountain path while enjoying nature such as alpine plants, mountain streams and waterfalls, the achievement of achievement when it reaches the summit is the highest. Especially in mountain climbing for the first time, let alone experience not only beginners but also experienced people. If you are a guide, leave it to an outdoor guide rich in experience and knowledge. As well as choosing a mountain and a safe route that matches the level, I will lecture firmly to clothes and equipments that correspond to the changing mountain weather conditions, and manners I want to be careful in climbing, so I am sure to enjoy climbing mountainly with confidence Let's see. ※ Iriyama notification is definitely a must!

Why do not you look for the charm of nature in Hokkaido

Nature walk

Under the endless endless sky, the landscape where extensive greenery continues is exactly the image of nature in Hokkaido itself. Due to the Tsugaru Straits the natural environment of Hokkaido shows different forms from Honshu. When the world of snow and ice is over, nature in north starts to move all at once. Echoes or Chipmunk can see the face from among the pretty wild flowers as they heard the songs of birds as called by the trees' sprouts. If you stroll along with the outdoor guide, you will be able to touch the charm of nature in Hokkaido, which we just did not notice.

It is the sixth largest caldera lake in Japan (the lake formed by the crater sinking after the volcano erupted). The water of Lake Mashu contains little impurities. The peculiar deep indigo lake surface is said to be "Megumi Blue" and it is a place where many tourists visit to see the mercy blue that nature weaves at first sight.


In the vicinity of Lake Mashuu there are "Megumi Onsen" and "Kawayu Onsen" and there are two hot spring sights and it will heal the tiredness of the trip of visitors.


In addition, there are three observation points around Lake Mashuu, and this is also a place of interest.

An island called "Kamui Island" is floating in the center of Lake Mashu. In Ainu language meaning "an old woman who became a god". The top of a volcano of about 240 m in height is visible from the surface of the water. It is surprising that a small volcano hides himself in Lake Mashuu!

■ Hokkaido campground

Although I am traveling a lot in Hokkaido, it is a waste to stay overnight at an asphalt parking lot. If you want to taste "Hokkaido no Nature" that is a bit different from the classic sightseeing spots that are crowded with tourists, it is best to use campgrounds.


Although it is a way of using luxury time compared with a journey that moves napping at a road station etc., therefore it is possible to feel the nature of Hokkaido with the skin that can never be tasted by "sightseeing tour".


There are many free and cheap campgrounds in Hokkaido. The location can also be selected according to the sea, mountain, river and taste. Since various fields are scattered in various places, from high-standard campgrounds equipped with facilities to wild campgrounds that can be in touch with nature in minimum facilities, guidebooks of campgrounds, nets etc. I would like to gather information and pick up camps that fit my taste and needs.


Because it is not time to taste the charm of the campground only if it is only one night, it is recommended to stay at least one night in a campsite if possible. Camping in the best location, let's enjoy the real pleasure of Hokkaido.
