Good evening.
These days, it is very cold in my hometown.

I have lived in Sapporo in Hokkaido for 10years.
Sapporo is the prefectural capital in Hokkaido.
It is the one of most developed city in Japan.

There's good point is that we can enjoy feeling changing seasons through a year.
In spring, we can see beautiful cherry blossoms.
In summer, it is comfortable to spend our daily lives, because in spite of summer, the atmospheric temperature doesn't rise so much.

By the way, do you know how Japanese people call autumn?
We say"autumn of appetite, reading or sports."
Actually, I want to explain to you why it is called like that.
I'm sorry but I forget the reason.(´・ω・`)

Finally, snow has us felt coming winter.
And the snow festival is held on February.
This is a famous event in Sapporo.

You know from these things, Sapporo is very good place!
I recommend that you come to Sapporo at least once in your life.

Thank you!
