    First onsen experience. Was extremely tentative about the prospect of using a public bath. The resort provided ample instructions for the novice like me. There are 3 onsen. Men and women rotate on when to use which. During my stay, I tried the onsen with large windows for viewing. It turned out very useful as it was fireworks night.
    The buffet dinner was disappointing though. We were not sure if it was possible not to book the night without the buffet. So we did. Turns out there are quite a number of restaurants in the hotel.

    ... a tourist. We found out that he is from Hong Kong and was on his way to Sapporo tonight and then to Hakodate tomorrow. I thought he didn't look Japanese and his English was way too good.

    We had a pleasant chat about Japan and where we had been and gave him some advice about going to Hakodate market at 5.30am. He told us about the political unrest in Hong Kong for the past two weeks. He was a photographer and showed me his full frame Nikon camera as well ...

    The highlight is definitely the sake testing. The non premium sake tasting Is free. The few premium sake they do charge a nominal fee. For 150 yen, I tasted a full to the brim cup of the most expensive premium sake. Which we eventually bought. Think it was about 5940 yen. When compared side by side, the difference in quality was ...

Back at the hostel we met a friendly American lady who works in Tokyo and gave us some recommendations for our trip before heading to our room and constructing the Japanese bed on the floor.

    ... walking to the end of the street and barely saw Asahikawa
    Central Station because they were doing renovations of some sort for
    a farmer-market-type festival. We had to get on the road since we
    wanted to reach the Youth Hostel in Daisetsuzan before it got dark,
    so we started heading back to the car. On our way back, we decided to
    eat at a very small restaurant in a narrow side-alley that seemed to
    have many restaurants. I ate some Chicken ...
