My mom is in Sapporo! My girlfirend, mother and I went to Furano on the weekend. Furano Ski Town is so lovely and quiet, I would love to live there some day. Its so near the ski area that I could wake up five mintes before opening time and not be late. We stayed in a lovely onsen hotel, went to Tokachidake and saw amazing Rape Blossoms in full bloom, glowing in the setting sun. Holidays are great. Next week, Shretoko!
