We had the most beautiful day trip to Lake Shikotsu, Mount Usu and Lake Toya with Peta and Ochan of Social Bus… We did a full-day hire of their micro-bus, and the booking process was quick and easy thanks to Peta’s helpful and timely responses. It was also nice not having to deal with any language barrier given that Peta is English…. The radiant sun, the clear blue skies, the beauty of Hokkaido in winter – it was all absolutely breathtaking! Even the views during the drive were amazing! We had a great time with Social Bus. Peta and Ochan are such warm and lovely people, and we’ll definitely be in touch if we find ourselves visiting Hokkaido again.

A wonderful trip to Asahikawa & Furano on a cold and frosty day… thanks to our experienced driver Daichi, we managed to have a safe and wonderful journey. Coming from a very hot country, this was perhaps the pinnacle of enjoyment of Winter Wonderland with beautiful memories of a lifetime for the Asahikawa Ice Festival and at Ningle Terrace, Furano. The whole trip was well organised through Peta and team. Keep up the good work and thanks for the wonderful trip.
