Let's kick off day 3's post with this outfit I wore. I purposely chose an outfit that was practically kawaii cause I knew that the itinerary today consisted of lots of walking, and semi-hiking. My group and I actually went prune-picking! You can also pick apples on the farm, but we decided to go for the prune cause goshhhh they were freaking tasty!!!
Here's me showing you guys how to pick apples haha.. Get yourself a basket, and pick as many fruits you want. I enjoyed this particular activity so much that I wish I grew up on a farm!
And later we headed off to Mount Moiwa observatory to well, observe! Hehee.. We rode on two cable cars and ascended wayyyy up until the 541st meter of the mountain and got ourselves a majestic view of Sapporo city. I thought Tokyo was THE city, but Sapporo, oh my, they're exceptionally contemporary as well!
See how small everything is? So you can imagine how high we were on the mountain top witnessing this breathtaking view. And below is yours truly banging(?) the bell at the Lover's Sanctuary spot located on Mount Moiwa. You can come here with your lover, declare your love under this bell, ring it, and lock your love on the bars they have around it. Doesn't get any romantic than that :D
|Changed my coat cause it got a bit chilly up here|
I think I may have to come again with a real life lover and basically do all things sweet such as this when travelling. My tour guide, Akemi, told us that there are quite a few more Lover Sanctuary spots around Sapporo city. So yeah, go find every spot with your husband, and make it as a challenge for you both to complete! Omg, I'm giving myself ideas!
Soon after lunch at Otaru city, we made our way to this quaint lil town in Otaru to find the oh-so-famous Kitaichi Music Box Shop. See how vintage-looking this city is? I was drawn okayyyy!! I feel like the town is sooo me and its fortunate that I had the chance to grab some pictures for you to see.
Take a look of the music box shop from the inside. I was like WHOAAAAA! This place is so big! And it's filled with various designs of music boxes one could ever imagine! Seriously, every corner and angle, tiny music was playing around and it reminds me so much of my childhood cause my dad used to buy us some music boxes from..Japan! :D
This is not even a quarter of the music boxes I managed to capture. Seriously it's like a lil kid's dream, well, for adults too maybe. This place was so magical and enticing I forgot I was living in a real world haha.. If you ever come here I'm sure you'd definitely ge yourself some music boxes to have at home. I'm sure I did.
See you tomorrow in my next post! :)
