Hokkaido. Hokkaido. Hokkaido. I fell in love with Hokkaido in only ten days. Hokkaido is a beautiful island! There's something here for everyone; crystal lakes, mountains, beautiful gorges, wildlife, hiking, onsens, and great food!! I visited Sapporo, Noboribetsu Onsen, Shiraoi, Lake Toya, Otaru, and Sounkyo in Daisetsuzan Park. This photo was taken at the Sapporo Factory.

Check out my Daisetsuzan travelogue for some of the most beautiful pics my little digital camera has captured.

--I went back to Sapporo for the Snow Festival (2003)! It was cold and I had a couple of close calls on the ice but it a great trip!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wide streets, great ramen, and lots of foreigners.

    Is that butter corn squash? It all sounds good anyway. I can't wait. I hope to have some good food there. Kelle

    Great pages on Sapporo.. Thank you for the brief but effective history about the Ainu people.. It's a shame anytime an ancient culture and language is lost!! Thanks again.. Rafi
