Budget: JPY10000(train fare), JPY5000 (accommodation) X 2 night, JPY5000 (daily cost) X 3 days
I hope I can control this travel cost being less than JPY40,000.

P.S.: I will not bring my laptop, because I will be on the train or bus or go almost the whole day. I will post the detailed travel events when I am back to Kandatsu.

However, this is only a plan. It may be changed if there would be some casual factors when I will be in Hokkaido. Anyway, it is an expectable travel although it would make me exhausted.
