It was icy and cold when I went for a run in Sapporo yesterday morning. At least the weather was fine and there was no wind.
A lot of the sidewalks in the city were frozen. Had to be very careful and take short steps - tried not to slip.
A pond in the Botanical Garden.
More icy sidewalks going towards west.
The entrance of Hokkaido Shrine.
A long approach to the main shrine.
The shrine building.
I kept running up towards Maruyama park area.
Some sidewalks were very narrow.
There were some walking trails through woods.
Back in the city - more ice.
Some back streets were very frozen.
A decorative pole for the season.
One of the "Light Tunnels" - must be pretty at night.
The symbolic Sappro Tower.
