Hokkaido Trip Highlights


About a month ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Hokkaido with my mama and aunty! It's been almost 8 months since I've last seen them and it was great to be with my family again! We stayed mostly in Sapporo and had a very relaxing and leisure-filled vacation. Here are some of the photos I took on our trip (which is mostly food):

Tip: They will close early if they run out. On our first night there, we went at aroun 9 pm, and they had already closed because they sold out. The next day, we went for a late lunch, maybe around 1:00, and they were already out of the Pork Soup Curry (their most popular dish). On our last full day in Sapporo, we got there around 11:00 am, and there was already a fairly long line waiting for the restaurant to open. The restaurant is not very big, it seats maybe around 30 people, and we were amongst the last parties to get seated for the first seating.

Hokkaido is a beautiful prefecture and I definitely recommend it for sight-seeing and super fresh seafood!
