The first day was hotspring hotel, near a lake only an hour away by local bus from the Sapporo Chitose airport. The scenary was lovely, especially the lake view from the open-air hotspring. The dinner in the hotspring hotel was served in the room, but unfortunately the food was no good…err….I was expecting something delicous inside the hot plate but it turned out to be two sad pieces of hard and tasteless duck meat….err….
The grilled fish set was lunch in the little souvenir shopping street by the lake before we went to the hotel. That fish is the lake’s specialty – a smaller version of salmon apparently. Hmm….salmon is much better. ^^;;
