Really Enjoyed Staying Sapporo

Sapporo 2012_2 1

The purpose of the trip was for business, but it turned out to be a refreshing break because of some reasons. First, I got an old and tried travel companion who flew out and home and stayed with me. Second, we had some spare time during the day. Third, we didn’t have an evening social event, including a drinking session. So, we could enjoy our free time as if we were on a sightseeing trip.

When we met at Haneda airport, we felt liberated from daily life. The encounter with the sumo wrestlers who make their way to the summer sumo exhibition event in Hokkaido made me excited.

Stepping out of the Shin-chitose airport building, we felt alive again with refreshing coolness of the northern island. Then, we headed to a hotel hear Nakajima Park known for its abundance of verdure and water. The park was in downtown, only a 10 minute walk from an amusement area of Susukino. The location of the hotel also added to the pleasures on the trip.

Other than those, we ate the local dishes in Hokkaido, but there is still a long list of diseases that we couldn’t have.
