Packing Heat Tech clothing from Uniqlo for the Sapporo Snow Festival

Heading for the Sapporo Snow Festival

This post is about packing Heat Tech clothing from Uniqlo for the Sapporo Snow Festival.

Taking advantage of some free time this weekend in a usually never-endingly busy #Travelife, I took out my serious winter wardrobe of Heat Tech clothing from Japan, tightly quilted down jackets and fleece wear from Cintamani in Iceland, and fur coats from New York for a quick trip to Hokkaido for the Sapporo Snow Festival.

I heard there's even a giant Star Wars sculpture at the Sapporo Snow Festival this year.

Then, on my way back, I'm also doing a short stopover in Tokyo to meet up with some friends and so some shopping.

SUMMER IN HOKKAIDO


I'd just been to Hokkaido six month ago, but it was at the tail-end of summer then, and winter is an entirely different ballgame. It's even colder than most of Europe right now.

Well, I thought I'd kill four birds with one stone by getting a business trip done, enjoying a holiday in the snow, and meeting with some partner operators to plan the private trips of two friends wanting to do holidays in Hokkaido.

Then I'd head on to Tokyo to meet up with friends for a few days and booking a few good restaurants in Tokyo.

WARMING UP TO COLDER CLIMATES

I usually dislike the cold intensely and avoid it like the plague, staying away from the colder climates from December to the end of February.

I usually head to Europe in June, when it's not yet too hot and overrun by tourists, staying until mid-July for a long holiday. Then if I have to plan another trip to Europe, it's usually in September or October.

That's me in Budapest last month

But last month I was in Eastern Europe, Austria and Germany for pre-Christmas holidays with my neighbours. And my Heat Tech clothing from Uniqlo sure came in handy.

After a pretty enjoyable and tolerable winter holiday in Europe last month, doing a Christmas markets trip with my neighbors, I've decided to get more into the cold instead of always opting for the fun in sun at around this time.

So sooner rather than later, I'll be back in pretty freezing circumstances, but as always living a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful #Travelife.
