Japan Sapporo Food Ferris Wheel

28 October 2016

Wheely good time

The city area of Sapporo is huge.
I am surprised by how huge and colorful it is. Like I said above, I walked the length of it to get to my hotel which is in the true city centre of Susukino.
I dont really know where to start looking and eating, and eating some more and then walking around and looking because everywhere is colored lights and lots and lots of people.
Halloween parties seem to already be going on, with girls dressed like whores with tails and devils trident spears giggling as they fall over in their stupid heels whilst crossing the street.
Salary men in their 50's fill halls of electronic games busy trying to convince the ninja school girl gang to lift their skirts after defeating the evil tortoise creatures.
Covered shopping streets are actually full of people, and restaurants, cooking things I have not seen before, and trying to set me on fire, see below.

I am here in Sapporo for 5 nights, my longest stay in any city on this trip, my hotel room is great and I think I have made the right choice as far as evening activities and things to do by devoting so much time here.

The picture doesnt do the meal justice, it was very nice, but probably very bad for healthy. It is not curry so much as soup, but it has hamburger, spam, brocoli, carrot, tomato, onions and cheese melted onto the top of it.
Basically its like the hamburger hot plate you get in a lot of places, put in some kind of soup, with cheese on top and then blow torched.


Japan-Sapporo-Food-Ferris Wheel - Nightclub. Great name. Not sure where they think the booty is going to come from though. The most booty of anyone nearby belongs to me.

They had absolutely zero customers beside me, and the attendents on the roof of the building were asleep at their posts, and then really confused that a middle aged angry white guy wants to ride the ferris wheel on his own.
