Anyway, the hotel breakfast buffet at JR Tower Hotel was absolutely satisfying and who could say 'no' to a big yummy bowl of all-you-can-eat ikura first thing in the morning? The view from the 35th floor buffet hall was equally spectacular. On a clear day, you can even see a couple of the ski resorts along the mountain range. I can imagine the view being even more amazing at night cos the place turns into a bar at night and all that.
So this happened mere minutes after we bought our train tickets. Yah, the Baker-at-Home got us our refund immediately. Another reason why snow and me don't exactly get along. Plus it's another reason to return in the summer and visit Otaru.
