Sapporo Snow Festival – pt 2

We enjoyed Sapporo again, getting a great sushi lunch. We sat at the sushi bar, watching our chef (one of several) craft each piece we ordered. The fish was delicious and the texture was above and beyond anything we had had before. We most enjoyed trying several different cuts of tuna and comparing the flavor.

Thanks for the gift!

One of the highlights was getting to see the end result of the snow blocks the international teams were still carving the last time we were there. Here is a before (from our last visit to Sapporo) and after for Finland, who made a carving representing the different facets of our personality interacting in society:

Here is the winning entry, from Macao, of the crane dance of spring:

Dinner we found by navigating this narrow street full of hole-in-the-wall ramen shops:

The ramen was good and we are looking forward to trying a different place this weekend.
