The Cold Waves of Otaru
While in Japan I had the urge to escape the ski resort. I had heard that a local town Otaru was pretty cool and worth a look. I got up early and jumped on the train. As usual it was dumping snow. The windows were fogged up and there was minimal visibility with the snow storm. And then we came around a corner, the snow cleared and I could see out the window. 6-8ft offshore cold waves. Maybe one day I’ll have an opportunity to get off that train and surf some of the cold powerful waves of northern Japan.
