This is a 5-minute walk from the north exit of JR Sapporo station and there's a 7-Eleven and Lawson nearby. Just across the 7-Eleven is an entrance to the underground walkway.
Their buffet breakfast was simple but filling, may be repetitive but it still helps. They serve from 7:30-9:30AM but when we arrived at 9:20 after our first night, there were still a lot of food and refills. There were 2 flavors of onigiri (rice balls), white rice in a cooker, greens, roasted sesame dressing, some sardines, salmon, meatballs, pickled veggies which I appreciated, miso soup, and tamago (egg). Wifi was excellent, the beds are comfy we felt warm and toasty. The room size was just right and the beds weren't narrow. There's space to store luggage under the bed, we had everything we needed.
Check in is at 4PM. It's around 8 blocks to Odori Park, a 30-minute walk per way.

... couple of days. The students have been great and have all signed my sling which will be a good memento to keep. Talking of students, the most mental thing happened Friday afternoon at school. All day I was reminded that there would be an earthquake drill. The red speaker phones were on display and teachers would constantly check on them. 6th period came and all students waited in there rooms. I went to watch the 3rd years - thinking any minute now ...
... A cartoon from Nickelodeon), as she worked on the soundtracks to those animations. Not significant to her performance but an interesting sidenote, the carpeted floor of the church was heated! We had to take our shoes off when we entered, but I quickly realized that my feet weren't getting cold. I knew the technology existed, but this was the first time I got to experience it!
Tuesday I had a tutoring session with Yuko, but Sarah came with me since ...
... the pastor who was translating the Spanish into Japanese and he made his wife come and finish the last half hour or so. She had offered to give me a break too but I persevered! While we were eating lunch the kids in the church got on stage to sing some songs. I am not sure if it was an actual performance or just practice since they didn't ask us to be quiet or pay attention but they were really cute. It's fun to see how much they have all grown over the last 9 months.
... at Costco this trip and have to haul it around as I made my detour back to our apartment.
Saturday morning I woke up and saw a message from Sarah that we were pushing our meal back from 1 to 4. This meant I had plenty of time to procrastinate going to the store and had some free time before having to start cooking for the day. When it was time to head over to Gabe and Sarah's we had quite a lot to carry but made it without anything spilling and without slipping on some of the ...
