Hokkaido journey was continued to the last city in Hokkaido, Sapporo. Sapporo, the largest city in Hokkaido is famous for its Sapporo beer, Ramen, snow festival and winter olympic. I took JR train using my Hokkaido JR pass to go from Otaru to the city. If you landed in New Chitose airport, there is frequent train to the city. For travelling around Sapporo, you can use 1 day pass include subway, street car and bus for 1000 Yen, or 800 Yen for only subway, or 300 Yen for only street car. During public holiday and weekend, there is donichika kippu for only 500 Yen for travel only on Subway
As I arrived early in Sapporo, I can not check in first into my room and have to leave my luggage to the reception. First I went to Susukino, the city center of Sapporo, famous for its night life and restaurants surround the area.
The first attraction I visited that day was Former Hokkaido Government Building, located nearby Sapporo Station Exit No 10. Former Hokkaido Government building is also named as Akarenga (Red brick building) and has history since 1869.
Soon after that, I back to my hotel, check in and rest for a while. I enjoy my stay at Vessel Inn Sapporo Nakajima Park hotel is the hotel is relatively new, pleasant staffs with nice breakfast. During my stay there, they have good promotion for the buffet breakfast, where you can enjoy a lot of Hokkaido specialitties especially the pastry which was prepared freshly in the hotel. The good thing of the hotel is also the location is nearby Nakajima metro station in the city center, hence it’s convenient to go to the city center.

I decided to walk around Susukino and having my supper at Coco Curry house. I have to admit I was fond of Japanese curry especially after my visit to Hakodate and taste the Japanese curry which taste different compared to normal curry I taste before.
