Finally, we booked our air tickets with Japan Airlines. As there's no direct flight from Singapore to Hokkaido,Japan, we had to transit in Tokyo and then take a domestic plane to Sapporo, Hokkaido. Originally wanted to take Singapore Airlines but was worried about the domestic flight connection, so decided to take Japan Airlines with the connecting domestic flight. Booking the air tickets with Japan Airlines was easy, the website is in English and user friendly. We decided to spend four nights in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan and three nights in Tokyo. The airfare to and fro costs us S$887.40 per adult. Next was booking the hotel in both cities. No problem with the hotels in Sapporo as there's many hotels located near the Sapporo Station. For Tokyo, we intended to stay in hotel near Shinjuku Station but there's limited hotel within our budget. Originally we could have booked our intended hotel cheaper but we were so fickled minded, thinking the hotel rates will go down, we ended up paying extra S$80 more per night . Argggggg. For the travel story, you have to wait a couple of months more, when I fly there and return with lots of stories. Looking forward to my trip:)

Visited the Revolution Travel Fair today and managed to get all the information I needed for my coming Japan Trip in a couple of months. As this is my first trip to Japan (supposed to go to Japan in 2011 but had to cancel it due to the earthquake), I decided not to be greedy to cover the whole of Japan. So I decided to go only Sapporo only and not the whole of Hokkaido and Tokyo.
