It definitely feels like Christmas in Sapporo. It's -5 degrees celsius with heavy snow, it's all lit up and there is plenty of people about, couples, families and tourists all enjoying themselves down at Odori Park. A wonderful illumination display, people are queuing up to snap photos, nobody cares about the snow, it's all part of the Christmas feel.
Meanwhile, back home in Sydney it was 42 degrees celsius, it's been crazy hot lately. I am used to Christmas at the beach, yep BBQs at the beach!
Definitely different to what I am used to but enjoying the change. Some nice pics of Sapporo Factory and Odori as we head off to Tokyo for the New Year.
