Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"It is hard to limit it to just one unique travel experience but my most recent unique travel experience has been to Hokkaido, Japan to visit 4 ski resorts (Niseko, Kiroro, Rusutsu, Furano). This is the most northern island in Japan and is known for the amazing powder they get during the winter. I had traveled to Europe alot and was not sure what to expect in Japan. It was truly one of the best trips of my life. We rented a car and drove ourselves around the island to each resort with the help of a Hotspot and GPS and we managed to get to all the resorts without getting lost. The people were probably the most amazing - so friendly and welcoming. Driving by the Sea of Japan on your way to the beautiful rural countryside to driving by Mt. Yotei (Mt. Fuji's northern cousin) was incredible. The food was amazing especially the sushi and fresh seafood. Each resort was very different and unique, but all offered ski in ski out access to the resorts, great restaurants and nice onsite amenities including onsens which one must try when visiting Japan. These natural hot thermal pools are very relaxing and are a big part of the Japanese culture. My favorite one was at the Hilton Niseko village it was outside with a view of Mt. Yotei. Being able to travel this beautiful far north winterland was amazing and something I would recommend for anyone looking for a new exciting winter experience."
