So I’m here in Japan with four friends since we won a tour (not including air fare) in Hokkaido. We were lucky to get to Sapporo in time to catch the tail end of their annual Autumn Festival, a two-week food event that stretches for six blocks. I’ve never seen anything like it! If I lived in Sapporo, I would make my way through the whole thing in the two weeks by going every day; We had just one day to get through it and eat what we could.
But first, we started our morning with breakfast and browsing at Sapporo’s Nijo Market:
From there we headed to the TV Tower at the end of Odori Park to catch views of the city while we waited for the festival to open. The following gallery has a couple of pics from the tower, and really, just a few of the festival. The event was so huge, there was no way to capture everything we saw or ate, or all the people we met at the booths. If you are thinking of going to Sapporo, the end of September is a good time so you can experience this event.
