Hands down Sapporo has the BEST Ramen EVER!!!  Hokkaido, the most Northern Island of Japan is famous for ramen.  Because it is very cold most of the year, ramen is very popular there. While visiting Sapporo recently, I bumped into a Ramen Village.  I was in Heaven!  These nostalgically themed ramen restaurants are located on the 10th floor of the Esta Shopping Center, Sapporo JR Station.  There are eight different nostalgic ramen restaurants that represents four different prefectures of Hokkaido.  Only the best of the best are here: Asahikawa, Hakodate, Kushiro and of course Sapporo.  When your all done you can even shop at the souvenir shop.

A short distance walk from the famous Tokyo SkyTree, in a small park stood a line of people.  Wondering what they where doing, we noticed that they where waiting to take a picture in front of a huge convex mirror of a highway leading into the sky with a perfect backdrop of the SkyTree.

The Park is located approximately here.   I recommend taking your family here.  It doesn’t  matter if you have small kids, older kids or no kids.  It was a lot of fun at this park as you can see from the pictures we took.  The metal roller slide was awesome!
