Today the temperature was 33.8 degree C. in Sapporo, the hottest day of this season. Compared to other part of Japan, Sapporo is considered enjoying cooler summer but it wasn't today.
I biked to downtown for some errand and stopped by Odori Park to rest for some icecream. Kids were playing in a stream running through the area and adults were enjoying beer. Odori Park is famous for this summer beer garden. This year I found a new beer server, which is a tall tube like glass shown in this photo.
Kids play ground in the Odori Park was designed by a Japanese/American architect, Isamu Noguchi.
Enjoy your summer but be careful of heatstroke!
