2017/02/09 A Quick Day Through Sapporo
π 2017-02-09 00:00 in Japan, Japan2017, Trips

Since we were going to Sapporo for the snow and ice festival, we left early to visit what we could during the day. We started with Shiroi Koibito Park, a chocolate cookie factory that pretends to be the charlie chocolate factory with oompa loompas, and while it is touristic, it's funy and pretty :)










Next, we went to historic village of hokkaido, which was a mix of old and new buildings, which felt a bit weird to me. I'd say it's not an essential visit, but it was nice to see with the snow:






Next door was the historical museum of hokkaido, which I found much more interesting:


interesting that Hokkaido lies more south than Paris and gets so much more snow

the Ainu people lived in Hokkaido for a long time before the Japanese came

And eventually we got to our hotel in Sapporo and stored the car in the car elevator :)

We then headed to Odori Park and the TV tower for some views:

In the evening, we walked around town a little bit and went for more tower views:






and for fun we took the subway back to the hotel

Of course, the main reason for going to Sapporo was the Sapporo Snow Festival, which is on its own page
