I started Day 07 of my trip in Hokkaido with a visit to the beautiful Former Hokkaido Government Office located at downtown Sapporo city. Built in 1888, I was fortunate to be able to catch hold of an outdoor concert taking place outside the red-bricked building. Since it was a Saturday when I visited, access into the building was closed.
After lingering for 30 minutes, it was time for me to bade goodbye to Sapporo and head to the city of Asahikawa where the Asahiyama Zoo is located. Touted Hokkaido's most established zoo, my visit was worth it for I could get up close to the Polar Bear who was resting comfortably in his enclosure. There was also this very adorable Japanese Red Panda as it made its way up and down the bridge.
In the late afternoon, I headed to the Hokkiado University that was famed for its Poplar Avenue. This is a beautiful campus that also housed the Hokkaido University Museum. There were plenty of green spaces and streams which made the whole visit a rather tranquil experience.
Growing up listening to the music of The Carpenters, he decided to name this blog Budokan in remembrance of their Live at Budokan Tour in Tokyo in May 1974. He finally made a trip to the Nippon Budokan in September 2017, 43 years after the Carpenters held their 18 sold-out concerts in Japan!
Hailing from the tropics, Budokan is fortunate to reside in Singapore where jetsetting around have become very affordable. His greatest passion lies in cultivating his lifetime career of travelling, blogging and tour guiding.
