Who says staying indoors is the best activity in Hokkaido winter?

We JaLSers ran out of classrooms into the snow mountain in Maruyama Park (圓山公園). The snow there was so thick that you could hardly walk. At this time, you will find snowshoes the greatest invention in the world :p

A snowshoe is footwear which enables you floating on (walking over) the snow without completely sinking into it. The gear works by distributing a person’s weight over a large area … clever!

Energetic JaLSers hiked, snowballed each other and played suberidai (滑り台) regardless the cold weather and strong wind until sunset. Following rounds of fight and slide, we took rest in small log house and had a cup of hot sweet corn soup …  It’s so nice to be alive (haha)

We had a great time in the log house by having great soup and chatting with local Japanese. However, it’s high time to go back home.

Goodbye, the lovely log house, tasty sweet corn soup and fabulous night view from the Maruyama Park (^v^)/
