Morning, we were the first group the reach the yin he waterfall and liu xing waterfall. It was a pleasant experience because we get to walk on undisturbed snow, and see that the yin he (milky way) waterfall has already frozen. But the smaller liu xin (shooting star) waterfull is not completely frozen, so one still can hear the trickling of water down. It was nice, the names of the waterfall, the small flakes floating down, the white surrounding. and our group members started a snow ball fight with out tour guide.
Then we went back to Sapporo, but on the way, we stopped by the founder folks' museum. After lunch, we went out again for snowmobile trip.
First timer at motorcyclist, and first time doing snowmobile. It was fun-er, safer and challenging then skii-ing. The route that the snowmobile company took us up the mountain was sooo picturesque but I was too concerned about maintaining a safe distance that I missed quite alot of the nice scene. Then there is a steep slope down, at least steep for first timers. and we stopped for picture taking and regroup before we make our way down.
Next stop at the salmon museum and the old sapporo beer factory which has turned into a great shopping mall.
