Sapporo

I said in my earlier Post, that the Sapporo Yuki Matsuri is not worth the fuzz of travelling, but dont get me wrong, Sapporo itself I think is worth travelling to.

The Japanese people are very cold people, meaning that they dont likely express their feelings of joy and warmth in the way that other nations might do, so it has been difficult for me to fit in, simply beacause my nation, Indonesia, is the complete opposite of that, we are warm and very open.

Sapporo people are somewhat just as cold, but they are very welcome and Hokkaido is famous for its northern hospitality, so where else to best experience it other than in the biggest city of Hokkaido, Sapporo?

Another thing about Sapporo is that unlike other places in Japan, you can see a lot of old western influences, like old western buildings, but you can still see the typicall Japanese buildings, and the food in Hokkaido is amazing.

If you are a seafood lover, then this is the place to be. everything is very fresh, which makes it a thousand times more delicious.

I think that Sappro, unlike Kyoto which is a super Japan tourist destination, and Tokyo the big metropolitan, if you were to come to Sapporo with a significant other, you might actually be able to enjoy it. its lovely really. and the peak season of going to Hokkaido would be in the summer, because they say the flowers there are nice. In February they have those Snow festivals which might be interesting to visit. so why not plan your date to Sapporo? hehe.
