Japan - Hokkaido : Tomamu

Tomamu - Feb 2016

Tomamu is not very near Sapporo so if not staying overnight at Tomamu, have to plan the time well due to infrequent JR trains. 

I insisted to come to Tomamu for their Ice Village - a city of ice that appears only in winter in Tomamu. The ice village is free and open to the public so dont worry if you are staying there.

Ice Village only opens at 7pm and we reached slightly early so we hang out at their hotel enjoying their free wifi.

All visitors have to slide down to enter the ice village lol so fun!

Ice Chapel. OMG This is so cool and pretty. 

And there was actually a wedding ceremony going on in there!

The groom and the bride!

We wish u a lifetime of happiness!

This is the Ice Hotel where visitors have to book in far advance in order to stay here.

Ice Bar

Giant marshmallow!

Many branches but I always buy at JR Sapporo Station East Entrance

Nijo Market

Nijo Market (二条市場, Nijō Ichiba) is a public market in central Sapporo recommended for having fresh and cheap seafood. The market opens from 7am to 6pm.

Nijo Market is three blocks south of the TV Tower at Odori Park, and about a five minute walk from Odori Station on the Nanboku, Toho and Tozai Subway Lines.


Mos Burger

I am not a fan of mos burger in Singapore but the mos burger in Japan tasted so much better there!


Address: Japan, 〒064-0805 Hokkaido Prefecture, Sapporo 中央区南5条西2丁目 格安フクちゃん5・2店
Nearest susukino station or Hosuisusukino. 

Go Hokkaido of course must eat crab! Call or go there to make a reservation first. 
Due to limited slot, we only managed to make reservation at 5.30pm for dinner and we thought it would be too early for dinner BUT we made a good decision on that. We reached at 5.30 sharp and the restaurant was empty. We only be given 90minutes so we had no time to waste. The crab section was full of all kind of crabs and I personally recommend to take as many king crab legs as possible because it is sooo good that the bowl was near empty when we went back to take half hour later.


This is what it looks like when I removed the shell
