yeah we should look to hire a place and maybe cars.
Onji is living up in Hokkaido and has good local knowledge at this point.
I tried to hook up with onji on the last day of my trip but it didnt happen cause my binding broke and I had to go back to the resort to swap them and then my phone died. We were riding the same mountain but had no way of communicating with each other. So close but so far lol.
He is living in Sapporo (or close to it) and is probably our best bet as far as finding suitable accommodation and car hire goes.
Feel free to chime in Onji.
