Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Article is here
Soft Serve Ice Cream
They served 3 types of soft serve ice cream, Vanilla Flavor, Chocolate Flavor and Vanilla Flavor Mixed with Chocolate Flavor. The chocolate was made of Shiroikoibito Chocolate, so it was a good chance to eat. I ordered a cup of swirl soft serve ice cream. The price was JPY 380.
I got my soft serve ice cream of around 10 cm height, and took a seat near the Soft Serve Ice Cream House. I had a bit, and rich chocolate flavor spread over in my mouth. The Chocolate Flavor was too rich, so the Vanilla Flavor was masked by the strong chocolate taste. But it was very tasty! That was not too sweet, so I guessed that people might enjoy the soft serve ice cream if they did not have a sweet tooth. Thanks for the tasty soft serve ice cream!
