First day in Hokkaido

20 minutes out from the airport, I find a dead-end, and we end up climbing over the fence to get to the road we actually wanted to ride on. That means we actually are having an adventure!

It was kind of rainy, though, and tomorrow's going to be really bad, so we'll be in Sapporo for 2 nights to wait out the rain and do our touristy things, before heading towards Yubari and Furano.

The food is amazing. I knew I liked Japanese food, but the quality and price has blown me away (yes, cheap!). If you want good food cheap, forget France. Tour Japan!

Have just come back from Tokyo. Agree with you totally, amazing food, inexpensive to boot.

Can't wait to go back for a longer holiday!

Hen na gaijin!

Enjoy the food. I highly recommend ankimo (monkfish [鮟鱇] liver) -- but it ain't necessarily cheap. (In France, this fish is called lotte.)
