In Otaru we enjoyed the many streets filled with boutique shops of music boxes, glass and crystal crafts and pastries. I finally got sucked into consumerism and splurged on these beautiful stained glass frames, trays, plate, vases, kerosene lamps etc. I also bought some biscuit delicacies and some simple coaster woodwork. I’m so sorry wallet. Then I drove to Sapporo and it was stressful. One way streets, confusing red traffic lights that actually means to go and everyone yelling different directions to me was chaotic. Finally we settled into the hotel. As everyone was traumatised by my swollen face, I got to choose dinner so I went with Japanese BBQ. It was $30 for all you can eat over charcoal and I went nuts. I filled myself up until I turned into a piggy myself. Yummmyyy. We then caught some of the grand final women’s Asia soccer cup between Japan and North Korea then headed to bed. I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking!
