Back from Sapporo and loved it! :) So glad I went, kinda glad I finally went alone and not with my annoying friend, as I ended up meeting new people at the Youth Hostel and going to Otaru with them on my 2nd day there. It was cold in Sapporo. The thing that saved me was the heat pads, which last over a day! I popped one open at 11am, and it was still hot the next day at 2pm.... How do they work?!
