In 2018 we decided to return to Japan and join another Walk Japan walking tour, this time of the northern island of Hokkaido. Our trip did not turn out as planned as we caught the end of a tornado and, while waiting in Sapporo before starting the walking tour, we were caught by a large earthquake just south of Saporro. This resulted in our walking holiday being cancelled and we were left in Sapporo to fend for ourselves. We remained in Hokkaido for the original duration, but had to organise an alternative holiday.
