Been to Hokkaido? I'd love to hear about your thoughts and experiences.
We've been to Japan a couple times before and loved it, but never got beyond Honshu (the largest and most central of the large islands that comprise Japan). Now my wife is lobbying for a trip to Hokkaido (the large northern island) early next summer - she wants to see lavender fields and apparently they have lots. From the photos I've seen, it looks awesome. I suspect Hokkaido has lots of other great things to see and do. Anyone here able to offer any suggestions based on first-hand experiences? Thanks.
