I've been to Japan couple times before but Hokkaido just feel different from any other city in Japan such as Tokyo or Osaka. It feels more homey to me. I love how everything turns white covered with snow, so beautiful. The food is beyond delicious specially the seafood. They have the best grilled fresh scallop with the size of a plate.
I've been on a road trip from Sapporo, Otaru, Furano, Asahikawa and today in Mombetsu. I went for an ice breaker cruise which is an awesome experience. The weather was drop to -10°C during the cruise that I could hardly feel my nose. I'm heading to Akan Lake tomorrow and I'm going to enjoy Ainu performance at night. I'll write a proper blog post when I'm free. Cheers
