1. Hokkaido Crossing 444 km: Bus trip crossing Hokkaido's winter (individual travel)

It is a revolutionary plan to cross via a road of approximately 444 kilometers distance from the metropolis Sapporo-shi of Hokkaido to the world natural heritage site Shiretoko, Utoro district while seeing the splendid sights of Hokkaido.
Because this is individual travel, please submit where you choose to be getting on and off. Because all disembarking areas are famous spots, you can travel with peace of mind. When you get off and stay for a stopover, please use the next day's bus as there is only one bus per day.
Why not try crossing Hokkaido in a somewhat different manner this winter by staying 2 nights in Sapporo and Otaru, 2 nights in Tokachigawa Onsen, and 1 night in an Akanko Onsen, Kawayu Onsen or Utoro Onsen?

Route A is from Sapporo to Tokachigawa Onsen, Tokachigawa Onsen to Shiretoko, Utoro District is Route B. Tokachigawa Onsen that links both Routes A and B is the transfer terminal.
Tokachigawa Onsen is in the Tokachi Plains, known as Hokkaido's food base, and is famous as a moor hot spring.
※The bus requires booking in advance.
