Afterwards, Paula invited me to Kutchan with her and we had some caffe lattes at a cute little cafe called Sprout. They have a white hot chocolate that's supposed to be their signature creation, which I'll need to try later.
After the big lunch and coffee, I went to the Niseko Alpen Hotel's pool to swim for 45 minutes and walk in the water for 15 minutes as part of my physical therapy. Since I'm eating all this good food, I definitely need to exercise. Part of the charm of Japan is all mis-spellings, in particular, the "r's" and "l's" as shown above in the "lental" equipment.
The Sakura shop is located just in front of our house. They sell expensive Japanese trinkets and souvenirs but all very nice stuff.The Powder Hound Lodge has plenty of snow and it hasn't stopped snowing since we arrived.
