This was midday at a crossroad in front of Sapporo Clock Tower in Tokeidai. The sound of traffic lights can be heard, pip poo, piip piip poo (the way usually Japanese children imitate it), along with the engine rush from several transportations crossing the main road. The conversation between people visiting Tokeidai can also be heard, which one of their purpose is to take pictures in its yard. Meanwhile the office workers on lunch break walks through the sidewalk. The steps of their pantofels is audible, tak tok, tak tok. People are deep in their own activities in Sapporo that stays cold until a midday spring like this.
