Snow, mountains and festivals

With the world upside down and inside out travel is but a dream. We have taken a gamble and booked flights for 2022, even if we are unable to go in the end the planning is going to be fun!

I start planning my trips by researching the places I want to visit at that time of year, in a specific region. This trip we want to return to Tohoku, and up in Hokkaido, with a few days exploring central Japan where snow will be deep and powdery!

This first list, below, is wishful thinking as we couldn’t cover that much ground in three weeks with our usual chill last week in Kawaguchi-ko. Next step is pruning and deciding the must see places.
