Hokkaido Camping Part 1

The last couple of weeks we embarked on a 10 night camping trip on the North Island of Hokkaido. Here is the first couple of days our are trip, which were pretty rough with a 2 year old. We left Misawa mid-day in route for Oma which is at the very north end of Tohoku in Aomori Prefecture. But first we had to see some Monkeys. Oma is known for their massive Blue fin Tuna. We spent one quick night and hopped the early morning ferry towards Hakodate with our van. Easy ferry ride which was only 1:45 minutes.  Once on land in Hokkaido we went straight towards Niseko and camped at the base of Mt Yotei. Big auto campground with natural spring water coming right off the mountain and a great onsen in Makkari village.  We spent 2 nights there catching up on a couple of travel days and really enjoying some down time in the outdoors and our massive car camping tent.
