On our last day of orientation we went on a field trip to the Historical Village and Museum of Hokkaido - which is actually right next to my 2nd High School!
You might recognize the Lord of the Rings Tower where John and Justin are battling it out :)
The Historical Village of Hokkaido is an outdoor museum where buildings of the Meiji and Taisho periods were relocated and restored... But who can focus on historical facts when you have crazy bridges, swings, see saws and Japanese stilts to play with!!!!!!!
