Sapporo - Japan

July 17 to July 18 – Sapporo, Japan

Before arriving Sapporo, we stop by Obihiro to fuel Avgas. Again, Sapporo only has jet fuel. Obihiro is further north to Sapporo, we flew over Sapporo, to Obihiro, and then return to Sapporo to join the group and stay overnight. Total fly time on the 17th is 6 hours. Had dense fog as landing at Sapporo, however with no problem. We stay the the airport tonight. Inside of the airport, there are these shops selling Hokaido’s live king crab, salted fish, cantaloupe, and other framing products. Here is known for its abundant agricultural products and ocean harvests. No time to enjoy, the finishing line is insight, everyone wants to cross it now. We leave to Magadan, Russia 8:00 AM tomorrow.

Landing at New Chitose airport, Sapporo. Visibility is ..... like this.

Runway all lighted up.

Airport shops. Wish we can have a cooking class learning how to cook these salted fish.

July 18 - at Sapporo airport departing to east Russia. Crossing those cold water again. Captain's order, survival suits on again.
I laugh so hard because I almost killed myself putting the suit on. What a paradox!
