    Hokkaido is famous for its seafood exporting throughout the world. So when one arrives at the Chitose Airport one will be greeted by a supermarket which is more like seafood market.

    Did not make any car rental reservation so a little panicky today because its the Japanese Golden Week holiday and was told too late to book. So went for a walk and bumped into Nippon Rent-A-Car just a short walk from hotel. So lucky they have cars available so rented a Subaru Imprezza for 4 days picking it up tomorrow. Including insurance will cost 44k YEN or $540. I believe will be cheaper if I'd booked earlier in the internet. Still its cheap for us sinkies compared to Singapore rates.

    Yesterday also rushed my staff to go apply for my Thailand International Driving Permit so lucky here in Japan they don't care to look at any license they just want this International Driving Permit

    Just back from the hotel's public bath and hot spring. It opens at 6am to 9am and then 3pm to 1am (its funny a sign outside the entrane says 1500 - 2500). Was there yesterday afternoon too guess I'll go everyday.

    There's no one in the bath to service customers so all customers got to bring their own towels and shavers and tooth brush etc. Only soap, shampoo, hair tonic, aftershave provided.

    I was the last to leave so no one around I took these photos.
