Sushi and Skiing

Over break, I had the most wonderful vacation visiting Niseko Village in Japan, a ski area right by Sapporo.

My schedule was as follows:

  • Breakfast buffet
  • Slopes
  • Lunch buffet
  • Slopes
  • Onsen (hot springs) – amazing minerals for your skin and super relaxing !!
  • Dinner at a given delicious restaurant
  • Sleep (gain weight)

We were there from Jan. 7-10, and so on the odd days, Jan. 7,9,11, we ate at a sushi restaurant called HanaYoshi, a place where my dad has befriended the chef. Accordingly the meals were always so wonderful. All of the ingredients were/are the freshest, because we were in an area near the sea.

I have yet to meet anybody who hasn’t fallen in love with Japan after visiting. There is a sort of perfection about the country, especially with the cuisine. The chefs have this obsessive personality where they will choose one type of food or dish, and perfect it to an art. Sapporo, in particular, is famous for its dairy products, ramen, fresh seafood, chocolate, and even potatoes, many of which I got to eat. IMG_0604 IMG_0249IMG_0844IMG_0603 IMG_0595And of course, Sapporo beer, which my dad kept in the snow while we were inside the restaurant so he would have a cold beer to look forward to…IMG_0824It was a pretty perfect and smooth-sailing family vacation 🙂
