Quick pass back through Sapporo to drop off bag. Bus to Asahikawa, the second-largest city in Hokkaido (after Sapporo). It’s at the base of a large mountain and at the edge of Hokkaido’s largest national park, Daisetsuzan. Loving the Dormy Inn again. A surprisingly delicious and affordable dinner of tonkatsu (what the heck is the ladies menu?). The best. mall. ever.
