Winter in Review

Punnada, Katie, Hanako and I infront of a huge snow temple at the 'world famous' Snow Festival in Sapporo, Hokkaido. "Say Cheezu?" More like "Freezu!" And don`t try to diss the gear...You know you`re jealous of my floppy-eared fro-warmer!

Freezing infront of Hong Kong's panoramic wall of snow sculpted into a ...headless Buddah? Wow! We almost made it with out the peace sign...Way to go Hanako. Pshh.

An exact replica (on a slightly smaller scale, and minus the wood) of Horyuji, the oldest wooden structure in the world.

Holy Snow Batman!

The quaint canal town of Otaru had its own little ice lantern festival going on (the lights in the canal are floating candles), but the best thing about this place was its sushi! Ooishiiiiii yo!

A Batman's-eye-view of the main venue from the TV Tower.

Oh wow Melissa! I didn't know you went to Hokkaido. Looks awesome (and cold!). Thanks for sharing the pics!
Hope you are having fun during Golden Week! I can't wait to hear all about it. :)
