It is good to be back in the big smoke of Sapporo. Here, at least, we can get a decent coffee. But you're at Starbucks you say? Yes, the coffee snobs have conceded that Starbucks coffee, at least in Japan, isn't too bad. While we're in Starbucks it starts to snow and big beautiful flakes the size of small cars float down. It's still snowing by the time we got back to our Hotel. We're staying at the Richmond Hotel again and they've even given us the same room we had a week ago.
