This coming December, 18th to 27th, 8 days. Helping my friend Wilson to make this trip happen.
Reasons why you should go:
1. It’s a lot cheaper than you follow tour/go sendiri, confirm dot com dot jp. We are pricing it about RM5500 now for 8 days. If we can find more people, it would be even cheaper. If we manage to get cheaper air tickets, we will give everyone a even lower price.
2. It’s Hokkaido.
3. White Christmas.
4. Snow Crab.
5. Ikura sushi, Uni sushi, giant Hotate, etc etc etc etc etc.
6. BECAUSE I WILL BE GOING!
7. And because i really really reaaaaally want to go and i hope to share this with you.
8. Everyone deserves a break if not a holiyear. FFS it’s Christmas! IN JAPAN!
9. If this one tak jadi again i will go kill myself with a mouse trap.
If liddat also i fail to convince you to go, you may as well go be an alga and get eaten by fishes that are bored because you are uninteresting like that.
Faster apply before 31st Oct!!!! More info is at Titanplanet.
Please email email@example.com if you have any enquiries. Or email me to get the application form. 🙂

My Xpax free 7 days data has expired. And i tried to save money by not renewing. For one day. And it was the most miserable day of my life.
No X, no Life. My BB was so damn kesian i didn’t even touch it for one day. Without the Xpax plan it’s just like a bloody useless blinking calculator. FIL.
The next day i succumbed and Type BB ON and sent it to 28882.
Subscribed to the 250 plan.
It’s only RM2.50 anyway for unlimited usage.
Go get one la. It’s worth it one.
onsen or rotenburo inclusive too?
ur host family might bring you there. During my nagano homestay i went: http://cheeserland.com/2008/12/hot-spring-and-snow-mountains/

Link not working, lol. Seriously considering 🙂 I just need to talk to my boss about this on getting leave XD
heh. the link works for me!
faster decide ok. If you want i send you the application form. ^^
Got the application form from the website d.^^
Alot of things to be done and submitted @_@”
Do we have to pay for the visa application or travel insurance?
Just need to pay only once you are accepted.
submit application first.
haha cool then!!! Well visa is taken care of. Im not sure if we have to pay extra insurance. Let me check with wilson.
haha yea the application form is a bit intimidating. but if you don’t have photos and stuff liek that, you can submit later, bring it along when u go to see wilson. 🙂
yay! we go eat snow crab!
If i passed the interview la 😛
so at the current stage, i need to submit application form, 2 passport size photo and also 2 3r/4r photos?
Or only the application form, then I bring the 4 photos during interview?
You can just email the application form to me 1st.
hardcopy of pics only needed during interview.
pls note japan embassy changed their passport size photo to 4.5cm x 4.5cm WITH white background!!
i don’t feel like going but i don’t wanna be an algae T_T
ok ok, you are a seaweed then.
Omygosh!! I wanna go so badly! =( Maybe next time! It sounds freaking awesome! Have a blast! Can’t wait to read your entries about the Hoikkaido homestay in the future! Hugs!
😥 why oh why is it in Dec? If only it’s in Nov, I would have definately sign up d.
🙁 why dec annot!
Because Dec is a very very busy time for me lor.
But,,, hahh hahha… guess what, I will be heading there in Nov. Yeh… yippieee… Can’t wait. 😆
if xmas falls on Nov,then we will go on Nov 👿
I made my first visit to Sapporo this past March. Besides the gorgeous scenery, I liked the New Chitose Airport. To get to the ticket counters, you have to walk a gauntlet of food vendors hawking seafood to go like raw crab and local specialties packed in dry ice for the flight south (to Tokyo and beyond).
Unfortunately, since it is raw food, dun think USDA would allow me to bring it back and would force me to dump it at the gate….
T_T make me wanna go nao.
oh i smuggle mentaiko back before no problem.
Mentaiko is a Hakata product. So many great things come from Kyushu!
Guess bringing it back to Malaysia is easier than bringing it back to USA; over here they want to either take it away from you or tax it so much that it’s not worth it… 😯
never been kyushu b4. i wanna tour around the whole japan!!!
yah yah.. i was also thinking to do backpack in japan with steven… wanna join ? 😛
sounds interesting.. ill be back to KL soon, but i’m not Malaysian.. :@ can I still join??
would u be around in dec?
would be around untill around 20s dec,then will have break. if have nothing to do go back hometown. but want to go somewhere for holiday.. and this homestay sounds so good.. but ive asked my parents, they said expensive 😥
anyway, just wanna know if foreigner is allowed to join annot? thanks
hey. let me ask wilson. but then the home stay is from 18-27. u oredi back here?
if i go to the homestay, then it will be my holiday for the break. but, d chance of me going is very small.. if my parents oledy said expensive then they may not sponsor me going. if they don’t sponsor me I cant go la.. :@
just curious to ask if foreigner can join or not. coz if yes, then maybe ill save up for the next homestay 😀
next year then. non-malaysian shouldn’t be a problem if you fit other criteria
If foreigner, we need to know if you are residing in msia or not.
1) interview you in person in PJ, msia
2) meet at KLIA to depart together to Japan.
and pls note THIS IS NOT A HOLIDAY/VACATION trip.
It’s meant for culture & language exchange.
If you got the chance to go travel, then that is BONUS.
why RM5500???? omfg whyyyyyyyyyy????
i wanna go T.T
next yr la..after i grad..
it’s quite cheap oredi. 🙁
yalo..haiz i’m still a student ma..

Go Cheesie! Pls blog a lot about winter in Hokkaido so that I can go next time! 🙂
Here’s my recommendation for you:
星の庵 at Biei. My personal favourite.
wa u stayed ther?
but we will be staying with our host so next time maybe!
wahhh this place is super expensive…
some more it is done so commercialised…
the place is not at sapporo. it is at center of hokkaido, biei/asahikawa.
quite a distance from sapporo (drive i guess 6-7 hours?)
you can use their washing machine. +300 yen
toiletries are not provided. but you can rent it at 300yen
nice place though. good for travel, but not culture & language exchange homestay.
Hi Ringo.. Nice blog you have & you’re so beautiful~
Will it be less fun if I couldn’t speak Japanese for the homestay trip?? =Worry= 😳
Hence, need your good advice on how u pick up japanese language & where have you studied?Do you have JLPT? ^_^
not at all. it will only make it more fun!!
yea i passed my Level 2!
Wah.. Level 2.. Great 😈
really wanna go! but it’s so cold in the winter there! plus, i cant speak japanese well, how to communicate with the host family? 🙁
that’s the fun part of it!! limited eng + sign language + everything else. 🙂
Love your blog!! just wondering whether married couple can go? our age are less than 25..
Married couple are welcome but we will place 2 of you in different host family.
so, how much is e price tour now?
still RM 5500?
hope it’d be like RM3k only..
hey!! i would like to go.!
can you send me an application form?
btw im from singapore,what are the other criteria??
You can download the application at our website http://titanplanet.net/application.htm
However, Hokkaido Dec09 homestay is already closed! We just got our tickets… hehe
Singaporean is ok. However, we need you to come to our office in PJ for interview, orientation & depart from KLIA to Japan in a group.
Apply now & we will interview you when we return from Japan!
thanks.im fine with coming down to pj for an interview but since the hokkaido dec 09 homestay is already closed, just wanna ask is there any japan homestays coming up??
I went to Hokkaido last year for skiing, they have the softest snow ever! and I really love their hot drinks machine.
