Q: Why would you think of using a rental car in Japan to travel to Hakodate? Can you share with us your complete guide to driving in Hokkaido especially for international travelers? 

A: Since we were traveling with our family members, we wished to move around together while having a chat. It was also difficult to carry big luggage in public transportation especially during peak hours. We have converted our Malaysian Driving License to the International Driving Permits (IDP) prior to our departure. Most of the car rental companies offer GPS with English maps of the area. We would recommend you to check how to get to your destinations and phone numbers of your destinations in advance. Hakodate We continued down south to Hakodate which is our final destination with a self-drive leisure trip. Located at the southernmost tip of Hokkaido, Hakodate is the third largest city in Hokkaido. Founded in 1454, the city is best known for the spectacular views from Mount Hakodate and its delicious and fresh seafood as it prime attraction. The drive to Hakodate was pleasant in summer time and we also managed to capture many picturesque sceneries during the entire driving journey.
