GAGT fails on me when I try to type long texts and quote multiple posts. Lazy to retype whatever I've done so only for it to potentially hang again.

Basically big thank you to everyone who wished me and expressed concern. Hope all's doing well yourselves. As for those with questions, I'll get back to them tonight. In the meantime, check out the first post for FAQs.

Will be taking a shower and going out. Hopefully by 1030. Later guys.

Try PCWX, it won't crash when typing long texts and the uploaded image is original size

Continued walking down the length of the canal and saw a rickshaw guy. Had a brief chat with him, and he told me about the places of interest and recommendations. Didn't sell me anything at all, but I like his friendliness and enquired about a ride. It cost 3000 for the cheapest option, a 12-minute ride. I took it up without hesitation.

These rickshaw dudes are super hardy and weather resistant. My rickshaw puller, Yoshida, hails from Asahikawa, where temperates could go as low as negative 30 degrees Celsius he said. Today, despite the constant snow and reading of negative 6 degrees Celsius, it was "very warm" according to him.

Yoshida's service is excellent, first securing me with two layers of blanket followed by a wind guard. His spoken English is above average and I learnt a bit about Otaru's history.







He also stopped at numerous points along the route and assisted me for pictures. A dishonest guy would probably just rush through the ride without stopping.









Notice how he isn't wearing any head dress at all? I asked him if he was alright, and he replied that all rickshaw pullers are "very strong". The 12-minute ride ended shortly, and along with the recipient, I received a discount coupon for my next usage, with a 3-year expiry.

wow this rickshaw dude is no joke man....

Started the day out at about 1100. Bright and sunny, but very cooling. Hope it stays this way.

This coffee isn't good by the way, not "au lait" enough. Prefers BOSS.





First stop, Uniqlo. Off to get a hoodie for my poor ears.







Then hanged around the mall see see look look a bit.



NMDs and whatnot are super common here. Never bring enough money so eyes see song nia.

Went upstairs to the arcade.



Spent ¥2000 (more than $20) catching Donald Duck and Maril to give to Japanese XMM. Let's just say I'll be going home FA.





They have claw machine for everything, from accessories to food to gadgets.
