Days 4, 5 & 6 - Sapporo, Hokkaido
Here we are in Sapporo.
We were having such a fantastic time, as there was stacks of snow and the apprentice was overjoyed with finally being in "real"snow.
So, on that first day, as we were returning to our Hotel, as my luck has it, I slipped on this icy road and fell backwards onto my wrist and broke it.... Lucky that it was my wrist and not my head & back, although they are very sore also. I went by ambulance to one of the hospitals and was most impressed by the speed and great way they handled my injury.

So, injury aside, we decided to go to a "snow adventure park" instead of trying a one armed ski or an unbalanced snowboarding session at a large resort, as i was only capable of hobbling around...
We ended up going to "Northland Resort", which is just a tad north of Chitose and is a snow fun park for children.
Here is the apprentice doing a bit of 'cross country' while I was sitting watching with a hot cup of coffee.
