      Our visit to the Nikka Distillery in Yoichi was quite informative. Learning about the whisky-making process and the romance between the founder and his Scottish wife. There are interesting bits of information about the early days of Nikka. For the drinkers, there is the paid bar or the free sampling of three types of alcohol made by Nikka. Of course visit the shop for Nikka whiskies available only at the shop or get a Mount Fuji-inspired glass for drinking or for displaying. Otaru reminds me of Venice's Murano -- lots of glass items and decorations. The Christmas theme really puts you in the mood. There are beautiful music boxes and clocks so the temptation to buy is huge. Lunch at a local seafood restaurant was memorable. Lastly, a trip up Mount Tengu for a night view of Ishikari Bay and the Shakotan Peninsula puts one at peace and wonderment. To give an idea of how great the view is, there was a couple taking wedding photos in a suit and gown -- amid freezing temperatures and snow -- talk about brave.And all this is brought to life by the guides -- Rio and Hestia -- with support from their colleague Erika. They really make you feel at home.
