Sapporo has a number of public parks all over the city, but the one I liked the most, by far, was the Moerenuma Park. It’s a bit off the beaten track in already rural Sapporo, but it’s well worth it. Aside from the wide greens there are very interesting sculptures, fountains, and buildings by some of Japan’s […]

14 Jan, 2017 in Sapporo

I spent most of the last summer in Japan, and most of that was spent in Sapporo of the northern region of Hokkaido. Hokkaido is famous for its natural scenery, skiing in the winter, and the relatively cooler chilled out pace during the hot Japan summers.  Sapporo, the Hokkaido capital and biggest city, is also […]

9 Jan, 2017 in Sapporo

I spent most of the last summer in the city of Sapporo in Hokkaido, the northern region of Japan. Aside from the wonderful cultural adventure of visiting Japan and the lovely scenic beauty of the region there was one thing that made Sapporo especially cool – it had a lot of cable cars. I think […]

I planned to do this summer roaming through southern Japan following a conference, but once I was there it became clear this was a flawed plan.

Large Japanese cities tend to have atleast one shopping mall with a ferris wheel on top. It’s a trend, and I’ve seen this spreading to Taipei and other Asian cities. On a clear day, it’s a great way to see the city from above. So, on my last day in Sapporo on a day with […]

I spent a few weeks in Sapporo this summer and my accommodation was mostly based in the very lively Susukino area. Lots of funky bars and pubs and strange night life with many different adventures, but one unique somewhat touristic hangout that’s actually worth visiting is the bartending show at Flair Bar es overlooking the intersection at the […]

I spent most of the summer in the city of Sapporo in the northern Hokkaido province of Japan. I did not expect to, but the hot and humid ~35c weather down in central Japan left me no choice. I knew absolutely nothing about Hokkaido before booking my flight and heading out, and only after I […]
