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.

... before coming to Japan, and not only is it a thing but it's a popular thing! Kids go mental for it and it's usually played in every school. As I was leaving my vice principle said he was getting the same bus as me as he was going to Nakajima Koen (where I live) for a vice principle meeting. Quality bloke. Ex-gymnast, ex-ski instructor and current bike marathon participant. He broke his knee doing a backflip on a ski jump 27 years ago. Ouch. Anyway we were talking about all ...
... will practice for 3 hours. Mental. Another 3 hours tomorrow and a further 3 on Sunday too.
I strolled over to the girls volleyball practice first. Having played a massive 4 times with my first school Inaho I'd smack a few serves in and get a few "wow", "nice" and "oh my gods". Then I had a crack at a few basketball shots and my first 3 pointer I netted! Pressure was on too as the boys and girls team were all looking at me. I didn't let em down ;) Next i went outside ...
Like our journey to Niseko, our journey home involved a variety of transport modes. We left the Owashi Lodge in a car at 7:30am on Friday. We left behind a snowy Hirafu on a bus bound for Sapporo's New Chitose airport. Unfortunately, none of today's connection were perfect and we had to wait an hour for check-in to open.
... with me all of the time.
Wednesday was our last class before winter break. Our teacher gave Sonaka, Pamela and myself a gift, which was very kind. However I'm not sure what it is, maybe a wall hanging? Pamela also spread some Christmas cheer and made each of us a beaded key chain and gave us a candy cane and lollipop. I still had some candy canes so I shared those and then gave the chiropractor some in the afternoon. The chiropractor asked if it was a decoration, which I'm sure ...
Sunday after church we went to the chocolate factory. We started the tour walking through things like the hot chocolate cup room and seeing old chocolate boxes. You do eventually get to a point where you can look down into the factory where they make their famous cookies that have a layer of white chocolate in the middle. After that, there are some other parts of the facility that are completely unrelated to chocolate, such as an area with gramophones and another area ...
