Vicky and I had a great time in Sapporo today, although I have to admit that we didn’t do a whole lot of sightseeing…we spent a lot of time relaxing at our hostel, reading, doing laundry, and chatting with a few other travelers. Eventually, we forced ourselves to go downtown for a great lunch from a fancy grocery store and a few hours at the Sapporo Brewery Museum / Beer Garden. A note to future travelers–the museum has one of the best deals we’ve seen so far in Japan: four 8 oz. beer samples and a snack for about $4. If one were a lazy cyclist on a rest day, one could spend quite a bit of time in the beer garden there…

Speaking of lazy, I’m going to let Vicky’s pictures do the talking again! Astute readers will have noticed that I’m about two weeks behind on the blog updates, so I have a lot to get through while we have internet access!

You buy tickets for samples from this machine: so many beers, so little time...
