Last weekend, I went to the Munich Christmas Market in Odori Park.This event features many stalls with vendors serving a variety of Japanese and German food, drinks, and sweets, as well as Christmas decorations, toys, gifts, crafts, and more. My friend from Germany explained many of the traditional items as our group explored the market with cups of hot wine in hand.




We tried a traditional toasted almond candy, and some members of our group also had German sausages and beer. There is a lot to see at this market, as the area is also surrounded by beautiful holiday lights and decorations. As this event will continue until December 24th, there is still plenty of time to see it. There are lots of interesting and beautiful goods available here that would make great holiday gifts.



After we had seen the market, we headed up to the Sapporo TV Tower. December is a great time to visit the tower, as all of the holiday lights in Odori Park can be seen from the observation deck, besides the already stunning nighttime cityscape.
