How about the scenery of Doto? A lot of tourists visit here every year. However, Doto is a little public traffic such as railways. Therefore, I recommend the rent-a-car. The car is very convenient. However, you must not forget to obtain the international car license before you leave your country. The international car license is necessary to drive the car for foreigner in Japan.
Japan has a lot of elements. Doto is one of the elements, and is attractive. Please visit Hokkaido once.

Thank you.
