Sapporo or Kyoto

Published by at 2:31 pm under Other Stuff

As some of you know and the rest of you are about to find out, I am bringing my sister to Japan with me. She will only be staying 10 days so my training will suffer, but not so much that I will harbor resentment until my next trip.

That said I now have an excuse to travel in Japan a little bit. I will be getting a Shinkansen pass (Japan Rail Pass), the only question is with this unlimited JR travel ticket where will I visit. Kyoto would be nice because of the history and scenery but an 11hr train ride would get me to Sapporo where they make Beer. There are also Tanookis (Racoon Dogs) there I believe. Now I will see Tanookis when I visit the Zoo in Ueno Koen but still, seeing Raccoon Dogs in the wild an appealing thought.

When all is said and done I think it will be Kyoto which wins out. It’s about 2 hours away by train and there is plenty to do. That said I have not traveled with my sister for years so I don’t know what types of things she wants to see. The only goal that she has right now is a picture next to Hatsumi Sensei to add to her “Me beside famous people” photo album. Doug W, Rob R I am counting on you both.
