Homemade Japanese Food in Niseko

I had nomemade food in Niseko in North Japan in December 2015

It did not take long for me to notice that the people of Japan love food. They always seem to be eating or snacking on something, and whenever you talk to someone it does not take long before the conversation turns to food. They are very curious to hear what we eat in Norway, as well as to hear what I have eaten in Japan. In fact, whenever I visit a new place in Japan, the first thing my Japanese friends ask me is what I ate there. Japan is truly a food loving country, how the people keep so thin baffles me.

The Perks of Travelling

In December 2016 I travelled to Japan, to spend Christmas and New Year’s there. The trip would not have been as good as it became had it not been for my visit to Fuji Rock Festival in July 2015. Because of that trip, my visit to Japan became amazing.

I just made my flight back to Tokyo, the bus to New Chitose Airport in Sapporo had been delayed, as I arrived at the airport I only had minutes before check-in closed. I ran through the airport, made it just in time.
