Sapporo - The fifth step ... the length of Japan. - CycleBlaze

August 27, 2018


Up until two o'clock this afternoon, today was almost an exact copy of yesterday.

Then we went out to look at the famous Nijo Market, a small block in central Sapporo where fresh seafood is sold and various small restaurants are located.  We've seen a lot of seafood markets around the world so we were a bit underwhelmed by the market and are tightfisted enough to be overwhelmed by the prices at the restaurants.

In the end we escaped to a nearby beer garden nestling under a faux Eiffel Tower and enjoyed a Mongolian BBQ which seem to have become very popular across various parts of Asia.  Lots of mutton accompanied by vegetables and sprouts all washed down with a couple of Sapporo Classic beers.

On the way back we took a small detour through Nikajima Park, a pretty little park next to our hotel. Tomorrow we hit the road again heading for Lake Shikotsu which nestles in the caldera of a volcano south of Sapporo

Today's ride: 6 km (4 miles)
Total: 958 km (595 miles)
