Geocache Description:


This is the second in a series of ‘jet lag’ caches – interesting places I have found on business trips to Japan while walking very early in the morning. When you arrive in Japan from overseas, your jet lag (jisai bokke) makes you wake up very early. Plus, if you are in Japan in the summer time, you will find that sunrise is much earlier than in other countries because Japan does not use daylight savings time. So, if you want to explore on foot from your hotel, morning is a good time.

This one is in Sapporo. It should be within walking distance of almost any hotel that is in the city. Sapporo has a famous symbol that would be an obvious choice for a virtual cache, but I thought that was too simple. But still, Sapporo needed it’s first geocache. These coordinates will take you to a nice park near that symbol, and when I was here during Yuki Matsuri (the Snow Festival), there were many super snow sculptures nearby.

To log this virtual cache, find a tall silvery metal tube (almost a cylinder) that has two sets of 4 colored lines on it. Email me and tell me the 4 colors, in order from top to bottom. (Don't post the colors here!) (This tube is actually part of a flood monitoring system of the nearby rivers.) I’m also curious to see if the color of the electronic letters on the tube ever change – they were green when I was there. And, if you want, post a picture of the park nearby (please don’t post the object itself) in the season you were there. It will be fun to see the park in many different seasons!
