After a good time in Yudanaka/Shiga-Kogen and seeing the monkey park, it was time for another longish trip: a small train to Nagano, Shinkansen to Tokyo Station, JR train to Kanazawa, airport train to Haneda, plane to New Chitose Airport not too far from Sapporo, shuttle to rental car, and then longish drive at night (thanks Arturo) to Niseko, with some roads closed on the way (no thanks to Google Maps for sending us on them):

Lots of driving in Sapporo to get some remote resorts (Rusutsu, Kiroro)

Many deer walking on the road, our rental car had a deer anti collision device for night driving

Mt Yotei was a nice volcano visible from all around. Some people hike it up for back country skiing

We ended up driving a fair amount, the car came it quite handy:
