After Shiroi Koibito Park, our friend Yasutaka-san brought us to Odori Park where there's a German Christmas fair. Lots of German food and cute little decorations being sold here. Many glassware too, however they are expensive.
|really low clouds...|
|Yeah. It's real dark at 4:27pm|
Both Alf and I asked Yasutaka-san what are these boxes that we see on the pavements. He says that it's packs of sand which people scatter on the roads to prevent skidding/slipping during winter.

|Hmmm....can't decide between Kani Shogun or Kani-Ya since both are side by side...|
|Finally decided on Kani Shogun|
I'm really impressed by the Japanese service staffs . In this instance, the lady serving our table made the effort to place the plates on our table such that the design is facing us the correct way.
|Crab spring roll|
We walked towards the subway to take 1 stop back to our hotel. At the station, we saw another 1 of these stamp stands so I collected another chop again. :)
There are many such stands located everywhere in Japan (usually at major train stations, place of interest, airport...etc) so if you want to collect these, might be a good idea to bring a small notepad.
As if we weren't already full, we went to Daimaru dept store and looked for supper to buy back to our room.
Since it's near closing time, so most food are on discount. :)
|I bought 1 of these...Katsudon|
|Lockers for keeping your bag.|
Not just that, we noticed that they also adjusted the 3 nozzles of the shampoo/conditioner/body foam bottles in the toilet to be facing the same direction.
And in the morning, I used the hotel provided hairbrush in the toilet and left it next to the sink....what I saw when I returned was that the hairbrush was neatly placed back to the toiletries basket....and devoid of stray hairs on it! :)
|As if the supper is not enough, we kinda went to 7-11 to look for snacks later in the night. :)|
|You can get these at convenience stores here. You can attach this to the soles of your shoes to prevent slipping on snowy roads.|
|Walking past Sapporo station on our way back to hotel from the convenience store.|
