Before I came to Japan, one of the major events on the Japanese calender I wanted to go to was the Sapporo Snow Festival, which is held at the beginning of February every year. At the festival you can see huge sculptures made out of ice and snow that are very beautiful.

I spent most of Monday walking around Tokyo, going to travel agents(in the rain!), trying to find an available room and flight. Unfortunately, everywhere I went told me that there were no packages available.

Luckily, I got a phonecall from one of the travel agents yesterday and today I booked my holiday. I'm very lucky as I'm in the centre of Sapporo and only five minutes away from the station.

Now I've got to go out and buy some warm winter clothes!
