‘Travel Gratefully’ is a series of special or sponsored write ups that add more value and gratitude during my travels. The topics cover unique grateful experiences with specific people, things, places, and many others. For sponsored write ups, all are inspired by my experiences and nothing else. All posted articles are deemed worthy and in line with the main goal of this blog series which is to inspire MORE grateful travelling.
The initial plan for my Hokkaido trip was to explore Sapporo and the nearby areas only. During this time, there was no plan to go to Niseko yet. So I decided to look for Niseko-ish places near Sapporo. Since my trip was early winter, it was hard to find a ski resort that would be open during my trip.
