Hello blog! It's been a while. Have you been seeing other writers?
It's 2010, the year of the Tiger. MY year. I think it's going to be a good one. During winter vacation I took another, longer trip to Niseko up in Hokkaido for 8 straight days of snowboarding and 1 crazy night in Sapporo. Niseko may as well be Australia, by the looks of it. over half the people there are from Oz it seems. The goods and food there is generally westernized and overpriced, but we managed to find a really nice old izakaya nearby our hotel operated by a friendly elderly couple and populated by locals. It was nice to be in a place where we can't use English again :)
I love hokkaido food. They have
-Genghis Khan, a special type of seasoned lamb
-Miso ramen (often with corn and butter, which are also specialties of Hokkaido
-Crab. Oh my god dude, this crab is off the chain.
-Really good chocolate.
