Best time for Lavender viewing!

Very pretty and smell good too.
Best viewed in July-August.

Large urban city of Sapporo

Just like Tokyo, only some buildings are newer.

Ornate jewellery boxes from Otaru

Otaru is a small town north of Sapporo with alot to do within a small area. Highly recommended, and to think that I contemplated not going there... glad I went!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Cooler cleaner fresher air than most parts of Japan.
