Travel Photography by Chiat Hau Photography (Sapporo Hokkaido Japan)
Waiting for train again.

Finally we started our journey (officially) in Hokkaido. (At least it is a full day tour for us in Sapporo). Our 1st destination is the location we stay. Sapporo. So, our destinations are all the places of attraction around this city. Which included the TV Tower, Odori Park, the Sapporo Beer Factory, Ishiya Chocolate Park and Susukino. A lot of interesting stuffs and taken a lot of photos for LB as well. :"P (Yeah I am glad that LB has been willingly posing for me).

More photos after the jump... :)

As usual, our main transportation is still the JR train system that is available in Sapporo. Wondering and hopping around the train station. You will noticed that during summer time, there is quite a lot of poster here and there promoting the events that is going on around the area. (Interesting in deed). :)

Next stop is the Sapporo Beer Factory. I bet the Sapporo is pretty famous for their own brewed beer. They even have a beer brand name after Sapporo as well.

Our final stop is the Susukino. There you will have a street with a lot of shops in it.and a long the way, you will find a lot of neon light here and there but there is also quite a lot of well presented youngster talking to a lot of ladies. Which makes me wonder what is their real job is. (Yes you could see them almost at every junction of the street).
