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.

We arrived at Haneda International Airport and had some money changed to Japanese Yen, stored our luggage in the baggage storage counter, then went around Tokyo first before our early flight to Sapporo the next day.
We visited the Tokyo Megaweb at Palette Town, and we went around the shops and took pictures. We had fun eating …
... around 4 but honestly, realistically, I thought 4 hours was out of reach... 7:20am. We arrived at the start trail. Cue toilet time, picture time, banter time and Dan buying a walking like time. 7:50am. We started Mt. Fuji. It was a perfect start. Great weather. Great mates. Great banter. For the first 20 minutes the trail actually headed down hill haha. But it soon picked up in incline. The view was marvellous with a scene consisting of Fuji's 5 lakes, Kawaguchiko, a few more ...
... Friday we had date night and went to see the new Hobbit movie. Like all other movies, it's already been out in the U.S. for quite some time but has just gotten around to coming out now in Japan. I'm not sure how much a 3D IMAX movie is currently in the U.S., but I hope it's cheaper than the $22 that we pay here. That was a waste of money for the Japanese man who snored behind me the whole time. It also could have been a more expensive night had we of stayed ...
... at 6:00 and the program started at 6:30. OH! That's ok, we were actually on time for once for church and by the time it started there weren't any seats left.
The program was a compilation of all of my favorite Sunday morning groups, the hip hop dances, the hula group and the gospel choir. There was also a piano player who sang, a saxophonist and a skit by some of the youth. The night ended with candles and the congregation singing Silent Night, first in ...
... on the north island. I
landed with my Japan travel guide, I had learned about 100 Japanese words on the flight over.
I had heard that not much English was spoken in the remote parts I was going. As I got off the flight in Sapporo, I tossed my heavy pack on, my good friend back with me so soon. I hopped
on the train from the airport into central Sapporo, there are trains everywhere in Japan. The
city seemed very well organized, it was much colder than I ...
