    Niseko would be a 'classic' trip from Sapporo. However, with 4 days it might be a bit of a squeeze. It takes 2-3 hrs on the train and costs around 2,500 yen. An easier excursion from Sapporo would be Otaru. I liked it there. Only 30 mins from Sapporo by train (about 600 -1000 yen depending on the service you use). If you like hot springs then some friends I know have been to Jozankei and said it was nice. I looked it up; you need to take I bus from Sapporo station maybe. 75 min and 700 yen. Personally, I liked Sapporo a lot and felt there was enough within the city to occupy a few days. But if you're making the trip all the way from Tokyo, then you should probably explore some places outside of the city.

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
