Ah, winter in Sapporo!
Cold does not begin to describe it.
However, with central heating (unlike Honshu) and an outdoor culture, people on the big north island keep on keeping on, no matter what the weather.
On packed snow, many were out cycling in Sapporo.
On one patch of sidewalk on which the snow had melted was a nearly illegible bike symbol reads that pedestrians have the right of way.
This is quaint.
Pedestrians do not have the right of way on any sidewalk in any part of Japan.
Old people and young, the handicapped and athletes, are terrorized by cyclists, who often have no choice but to ride on sidewalks - legally - since the nation's bicycle infrastructure is minimal.
Japan has a great bicycle culture; its cycling culture however lags.
Another reason for a frozen beer.
