Update information Edit(Feb.6)
Now, I’m in Sapporo (札幌).
64th Yuki Matsuri (雪まつり) is held from 5th through 11th. My trip is very short and I’ll leave Sapporo tomorrow afternoon. So I took some photos in my free time. Like this.
I came back home yesterday.
I show you two useful goods for Snow Festival. Actually, they are not for Snow Festival but for walking on the road covered with snow (^^;). One is a trekking pole, which I had also taken with me when I had visited the shrine for Hatsumōde(初詣). The other is very simple anti-skid devices for my shoes which I got at the family mart in my hotel in Sapporo. A pair of them was only ¥598.
They helped me very much, so I had no falling down flat on very slippy roads. I added the images of them. Take a look!!
