Our orientation for the JET Programme took place in Shinjuku.
But for those of us who were supposed to work in Hokkaido, another orientation and conference was organized for us by HAJET (Hokkaido AJET). That meant two days of training and seminars in none other than Sapporo.
Very blessed that Iwamizawa City itself is just about an hour by bus or 45 minutes by train.
Even within the city, this beautiful oasis was found in the park at the heart of Sapporo.
