On The Road ~ Sapporo, Japan #1

Flying into Sapporo, capital of the mountainous northern Japanese island of Hokkaido is famous for it’s beer, skiing and annual Sapporo Snow Festival with enormous ice sculptures. We missed the ice sculptures though.

Hawaiian Air has a non stop flight from Honolulu to Sapporo 8 hours…. we are actually on our way to Niseko, world renowned ski resort, so two nights and a day here before a 3 hour ride to the mountains.

Lunch-Soba Noodles…. soba noodles are made from buckwheat. Served with assorted tempura veggies.

If your having trouble not know what you want to eat, perhaps this will help?

Lots to see in Sapporo

Ski jump from the 1972 Winter Olympics.

Fushimi Imari Shrine


Chi-Ka-Ho, the underground walkway connecting Odori and Sapporo Station. It is right under the Main Street in Sapporo. Besides getting you to the train station, the is how you get to all the shopping, endless shopping. No worries about the weather… When we left they were setting music and conference areas, very cool.

If you are traveling with kids or just love candy, visit the Chocolate Factory…

On The Road ~ Whistler Canada #11

We have arrived at Whistler, what a beautiful ride getting here. The Whistler Olympic Park was the location of the Nordic events facilities for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

From Seattle we rented a car and drove to Vancouver. I’m excited, as I’ve never been to Vancouver. The ride was beautiful, though we Were then in a border crossing line for over an hour….

Love Vancouver, lots of places to walk, water everywhere. Lots of unique neighborhoods.Vancouver is a coastal seaport city in Canada, located in the lower mainland region of British Columbia.
