Can I use "in which" instead of "where" somewhere?

Similar to these two instances, can I use the latter instead of the former? Thank you!

1. "the place where you last saw it"
-> the place in/at which you last saw it

2. "one of the few countries where people drive on the left"
-> one of the few countries in which people drive on the left

    Yes, you can. I believe it is better in English to choose the option involving as few words as possible, so I prefer "where" when appropriate.
