After a couple of nights just at the base of Yotei-san we drove a bit south to Lake Toya which is volcanic so the water was pretty warm. Our camp site was prefect. Right on the water with plenty of shade during the hot afternoons. We chose most of our camp site close to Onsens as its the best way to stay clean while camping for 10 days. This camp site had an Onsen within a short walk across a parking lot from out tent site. Eat, have a camp fire, fireworks, eat s'mores, watch the sunset, take an onsen (bath) and go to bed. This was our evening routine every night minus the campfire, fireworks and s'mores. Really the best way to sleep well while camping...clean and full.
Moving a little north to Jozankei just outside of Sapporo we stayed a night out of our tent at our friends Neil Hartmann guest house/ One Films Studio as He uses the space to edit and master the Car Danchi Saga that continues to grow each year. It was a great way to split up our trip with good company; stay indoors, eat local Indian food and have the Best Onsen of our trip. It was a major treat! Thanks again Neil to you and your beautiful family for the local Jozankei experience. Next time it will be in winter...
