I took an overnight train to Sapporo and arrived at 6:00am this morning! I wasn't meeting my hostess (Crystal, a couch surfer!) until 2:30pm so I decided to wander around a bit (in the cold!) to see what Sapporo had to offer. Here's what I found:
I didn't initially intend to visit Sapporo, but I decided that it was best to make the most of my 3 week Japan Rail pass - I wanted to get a taste of northern Japan. I'll admit it...Once in a while I find myself in a location and wonder why the heck I am here. True, Sapporo may not have the most inspirational architecture in Japan, but I was here nonetheless so I had to make the most of it. So after a day of wandering around in the cold, Crystal (an 'Amer-I-CAN' couch surfer teaching English in Japan) took me and Liz (another English teaching couch surfer) out for a night of salsa dancing in Sapporo!
