My second day morning was started by having the breakfast at Nakajima Vessel Inn. During my visit, they have special promotion for the breakfast which cost less than normal. I was glad that I chose to have the breakfast they had various type of local food I can try, especially for their wonderful pastry. Hokkaido is famous for its pastries as they produce fresh daily products by their own.
The main destination of that day is the Shiroi Koibito Park. Shiroi Koibito is the most famous Omiyage (souvenirs) for trip from Hokkaido especially Sapporo. You can visit the park as well joining the factory tour to look through the process of Shiroi Koibito being processed or perhaps you are interested to the baking class held inside. The location of the factory is a bit far from the city, however reachable through Miyanosawa subway station exit 5.
I continued my trip that afternoon by visiting Sapporo Hitsujigaoka Observation hill. To go here, you will need to take the subway to Fukuzumi station then continue with chuo bus 84 for Hitsujigaoka Tenbodai for about 12 minutes.
In here, you can see the statue of the father of Hokkaido development, Dr. William S. Clark. Dr Clark is famous for his messages to the students, “Boys, Be Ambitious”. The content of the message was “Boys, be ambitious!!” Be ambitious not for money or for selfish aggrandizement, nor that evanescent thing which men call fame. Be ambitious for knowledge, for righteousness, and for the uplift of your people. Be ambitious for the attainment of all that a man ought to be.
For beer lover, you can visit either Sapporo beer garden or Asahi breweries. Even though I don’t drink, I was interested to visit the Sapporo beer garden. The entrance is fee, however you will need to pay to have the sample of Sapporo beer or having the buffet inside.
Sapporo became my last destination in Hokkaido before I continued my trip to Kamakura and Nikko.
