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~



















NOBORIBETSU - Hell Valley

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.



RUSUTSU -Otaru




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.

OTARU-Sapporo
Nijo Fresh Market

we visited the Nijo Fresh Seafood Market, the Ishiya Chocolate Factory and shopping shopping and shopping at the Hokkado largest shopping mall - sapporo station shopping arcade.
























We wore the japanese style robe


Yummu buffet dinner

Kobe Beef that cost 10,500yen per 200g/slice

Overall, we had a wonderful time in Hokkaido, we got to know some new friends during the trip, good food, wonderful scenery, very polite japanese people and super clean toilet. DH and I plan to visit again for sure.
