This tour leaves from the bus terminal adjacent to the JR Station and adjacent to the JR Tower Hotel. You must take your voucher to the bus station tour office which is on the second floor of the ESTE building. The tour group assembles there and then walks downstairs to the bus

Hi, thank you for contributing the review! The explanation of meeting point and use of audio guide really gives an in-person experience, as well as helpful guidance to other travelers. We are glad to know that audio guide tells necessary (yet not boring!) information during the tour. This tour is also a good leisure to being in the nature of Hokkaido, for relatively easy activities. Great you had a good time! Thank you again for joining us!

Tour operator Peta emailed me and setup pickup at my hotel. Sam was the driver and was punctual. I was the only one on the tour. Sam was great and was from Australia so English was not a problem. Had a great time!

Hi, thanks for the review. However we are sorry to have to confirm the trip you took, it sounds like a tour with another tour operator rather than ours. You had individual pick up and the tour is like a private one, which we do not have in Hokkaido. We appreciate if you may duoble-check and send this review to your tour organiser. Cheers!

I joined the tour with my dad in early July. The tour departed from Sapporo station and on the way back they can take passangers back to Sapporo or Jozankei onsen. The tour provided a very efficient way to view three sites: Lake Shikotsu, Lake Toya, and Mount Usu. Price
