|A rainy but not very hilly part near Sweden Hills|
Outside Sapporo there is a place called Sweden Hills, because you are only allowed to put up Swedish looking houses there. I went there with two Swedish friends and we got a lot of Japanese food from our Japanese friends who live there. We also got to see some Swedish culture.
|There is a huge "Dalahäst", made in Sweden and shipped to Japan, in a park on top of the Sweden Hills hill.|
|Swedish looking houses in Japan|
|They had had a "surströmming" party the day before we got there (so we were lucky in avoiding that!).|
|The Sweden Hills cultural center has a small library of Swedish books, including the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.|
|The library also includes exciting books like the 1976 edition of the Swedish labor laws...|
|Japanese "nabe", very nice food|
