Odori

Downtown Sapporo

sunny 19 °C

Friday we went to Odori Park and the TV Tower so see more of downtown Sapporo.
I like the downtown area, although it is very quiet for such a big city.

TV Tower (like Paris - just smaller)

Odori Park is on the first picture. Its the place to hang out at night ;)

We ate burger. At the time American food seemed like a good alternative to the strange, slimy fish breakfast.

First Week in Kirari

overcast 20 °C

First week we stayed in Kirari, which is the International dorm at Hokkusei University. Trevor, Naomi, Steph and I took some walks around town. We had a lot of free time...

This is the view from the University. The mountains are all around the city.

Drink automats (however you call them) are found on every corner. DO NOT TRY THE FRUIT TEA :(

The loudest place I discovered. Pachinko: "One armed Bandit" gambling all over Japan!

Rice balls (I still find them boring) and sea food with rice ;)
