day 237 - Saturday in Sapporo
Q: What has plastic teats and gives milk?
A: A plastic cow.
We stumbled on a Hokkaido Dairy Promotion. Only the Japanese would invent a mechanical cow. It doesn't kick, so it's safe for the kiddies. (Note redundant real cow behind looking on forlornly.)
Sapporo has a fantastic linear park which divides the city North/South. It's called Odori ('Big Street.') One end has the Sapporo TV Tower which reminded us of the Eiffel Tower...
The other end of Odori Park, not L'Hotêl des Invalides, but the Former Court of Appeals. Lyn is appealing.
