Japan - October 2003 (1)index | TI home | next
On Oct. 29th, 2003, The Travelling Ishikawas and their friend Stephanie Scott went to Japan. It was Steph's first trip, Cat's first since leaving Japan in 1988 after spending most of the 70s and 80s there, and Fumiyo's first since 1996.
The Ishikawas + 1 started their trip in Sapporo, on Halloween. Some appropriate foliage greeted them on Odori (literally Big Street), a park-like street in the middle of the city. Odori really comes into its own every winter as the site of Sapporo's Snow Festival, one of the wonders of the modern world.
