Our Winter Honeymoon

Hokkaido - 24/12/07 to 31/12/07

We went to Hokkaido for our honeymoon. From Singapore we had to travel 6 hours to Nagoya, then transit to a 1 hour domestic flight to reach Hokkaido.
Over the 6 nights, we stayed in 5 different hotels/resort..the rooms were nice, better than what i was expecting initially.

Here are some pics taken during the trip,enjoy~


They have the most sulphurous pond and enjoy the Hotspring Bath in the hotel, we visited the Shiraoi Ainu Village too.

LAKE TOYA - Rusutsu(Ski resort)

This resort is one of the prominent large all-season resort, big ski area and we tried the exciting snow rafting and snow tubing too.


Otaru Orgel Doh, which houses the "Otaru Music Box Museum", the beatuful heaven sent sounds from the music box now embrace this nostalgic city of Otaru. The best buildings are to be found in the harbour areas and along Otaru canal, which is beatifully lined with lamps... a spectaculat sight.

Oh! forgot to mention, there is a cafe opposite the music box museum, most of the tourist do not go for the coffee but the cup! Yeah, u can actually choose the HelloKitty Cup that you like, after finish the coffee you can bring the cup home, and these are the 2 cups we are choosen.
