Chisato-san Interview

Amazing Sapporo Blog

Amazing Sapporo Blog

Chisato-san lives in Sapporo, creates cool art and also shares information about Hokkaido & Japan on her Twitter feed and Blog.
I was born and brought up in Sapporo. I studied English at university and I'm still a English learner. I worked with Sapporo ALTs before. After that, I started to post about Sapporo and Japanese culture on a Twitter account named I love Sapporo. Now I write Sapporo Lilac Journal on note to share info of Sapporo with more people. My dream is to be a childcare worker. My hobby is folding origami.

INTERVIEW:  (March 2022)

1. What are you favorite places in Hokkaido?

I like Otaru. It takes about 30 minutes by train from Sapporo. I like to see the ocean from a window of the train. The view is beautiful especially in summer. I’m collecting glass dolls. They are SO small. The height is about 1~2cm. Otaru is famous for its glass art.

I haven’t been to Hakodate yet. Hakodate has many historical buildings and places. I’d like to go there in Spring. Hakodate is famous for Goryo-kaku park and you can see beautiful cherry blossoms there.

2. Please ask your grandparents what they did to celebrate their birthday when they were a kid. Ask them if they had a pet when they were a kid.

My grandma says she had a cat and a dog when she was 11years old.

She says she wasn't celebrated on her birthday.

3. What is your favorite Japanese food restaurant? What is your
favorite non-Japanese restaurant?

北海道四季彩亭/Hokkaido Shikisaitei (Sushi) I love their “fried prawn” sushi! It’s delicious!

大戸屋/O-toya (Japanese restaurant) They serve you a meal of rice, miso-soup, Japanese pickles and main dish (baked fish or chicken karaage or grilled chicken and so on). You can also eat udon, soba, oyakodon (a bowl of egg, chicken and rice.), katsudon and so on.

I like Chinese food. I think Chinese restaurants in Japan are tasty.

4. So you think Sapporo should host the Olympics in the future?

No. (lol) I think there are some benefits. If Sapporo hosts the Olympics, many people will know about Sapporo more and come to visit here. That would be great. But, it costs a lot to host the Olympics. Also, I’m worried about security against terrorism.

5. Why did you study English and not a different language?

When I was small, I was into foreign novels. I read many books. I read all series of Harry Potter (7 volumes but 11 books in Japan). The Princess Diaries (13 books) and Darren Shan (12 volumes). I liked to lean foreign cultures from novels. After I entered a university, I stated to read books in English. The rhythm of sentences, beautiful adjectives…I thought how English is beautiful.  Yes, it’s still difficult for me. I’d like to master English someday!

6. Do you think Hokkaido people are shy compared to people from Osaka or Tokyo?

 In general, they say Osaka people are talkative and funny (many comedians are from Osaka.), Tokyo people are fashionable and active, and Hokkaido people are warm and friendly. I think Hokkaido people are sometimes shy but kind. If you are lost and ask a street to a Hokkaido person, I’m sure the person will tell you the street kindly.

News from: Sapporo Lilac Journal

Sapporo Lilac Journal /November 2022 :

Hi! How are you?

  I can see a tree from my room's window and there's no leaves on the tree. All leaves were fallen. It was windy a few days ago. How's the weather in your town? It snowed in Sapporo on the 16th and it was first time to snow this year. I went shopping to buy food and clothes for winter. Long winter will come again. About half of a year is winter in Hokkaido.
  I heard an interview on the radio and a 17-year-old Ukrainian girl was talking with an interviewer. She came to Japan from Ukraine to escape from the war. Her Japanese was very fluent! I was impressed. She was writing about the situation of Ukraina and how she got to Japan in Japanese, and the diary was published as a book this time.
  Ukraine and Russia are still at war. I hope it ends soon. I don't want to hear sad news anymore. Many Ukrainians came to Japan like her. Let's help each other☺


Sapporo Lilac Journal / October 2022 :

Hi! How are you?

  It's been a while. I'm good. How about you? It's getting colder and colder in Sapporo these days. I wear a jacket when I go out. (Pink jacket that I got this year❤) I'm thinking to buy portable heater which is called "Kairo". Kairo is warm~. You put it on your clothes or put it in your pocket, and you can make your body warm.
  Leaves on the trees are turning yellow and red. Beautiful. It's fun just strolling around my neighborhood.
  Some bears were seen in the city again. They are looking for food before they sleep during winter. Please be careful. Winter is long in Hokkaido. Maybe I should eat a lot before winter like bears? Hehe.
