Japan 2008 Part 1

Hb & I decided to head for a Japan trip this year Jan for about 10 days - 7 days in Hokkaido, 3 days in tokyo. Not really a planned trip nor scheduled trip. So I now need to save money to recover the hole created. However, this trip is definitely one of the trips that hb n I enjoy a lot especially the snowy weather @ hokkaido. :) Would go back one of these days again.

A total of 738 pictures were taken. After looking at the pictures repeatedly, I decided to break them in some little parts and post them here. :) Don't really think I would resize them all and upload all - it would be a bit too much. :p

p/s: The pictures selected are random shots that I like.
