Hokkaido 2019 | Susukino

 After resting in the room for a few hours, we went out for dinner and sightseeing.

Our destination is to Susukino area.  Susukino is a red-light district in Sapporo.  There were so many restaurants around the area and many people too.  Not sure what and where to eat, we just walked around. Then suddenly we saw this one familiar restaurant.  We used to dine at their branches in Kyoto and Osaka.  So we went inside, there were a short queue, we waited for awhile for our table.

Sadly we could not find our favourite mushroom and pork dish in the menu.  Maybe the mushroom dish only available during Autumn.  Nonetheless, we had a good meal of ramen, egg rice, fried chicken and gyoza.






After dinner, we continued browsing around the area before we call it a day.

That’s how we spent our Day 1 in Sapporo. Sweet memories indeed.

Hokkaido 2019 | Odori Park

Odori Park, Sapporo’s central park. 

From The Former Hokkaido Government Office, we continued our walk to Odori Park. The weather was so good, at 15 degrees, cool breeze blowing to your face. We just seat there for about an hour enjoying the views and fantastic weather. ohh I really miss those moments. 

There are many benches provided around the park. I imagine sitting there with a book in my hand, and maybe a cup of good hot white coffee, I am sure I can stay there for hours. For now, let just paint that image in my head.

Flowers every way.

After Odori Park, we walked to the Clock Tower, took some photos, and went back to the hotel for checkin.

Hokkaido 2019 | The Former Hokkaido Government Office

The having our 1st lunch, we continue our walk to The Former Hokkaido Government Office. 

The Former Hokkaido Government Office, also known as the “Red Brick Office Building”, is Hokkaido’s best-known symbol.

I am sure this is a must-visit landmark for 1st timer in Sapporo.
