Here's some of my favorite geographical names in Hokkaido, Sakhalin (Karafuto), Kuril and Rishiri Island in Ainu Language (spoken by the indigenous people). I think they sound very beautiful.

Kamui Mintara (meaning The God's Garden)


Rebaus


Atoiya


Tosso


Seseki


Merei


Taraika


Frepe


Ruerani


Pirkauta (meaning Beautiful Beach)


Sirius (great naming sense really, located at the northern tip of Hokkaido)


Yurapp


Kamui Ruesani


Nokkeatoi (from "Tears Cape")


Ikusina


Idassyubet

Wakkanai City - a small port of 42,000 people. Located at the northern tip of Hokkaido and Sakhalin is just there, only 43km away!

They may be fake, but anyhow beautiful aren't they? They really match the beauty of Hokkaido's climate and nature. That is why many tourists come from Asia.

^Because Sakhalin is very close and I believe there's a small Russian comunity in Wakkanai There's a 1-hour difference between Japan and Sakhalin.

Oh I see.

But unfortunately, there are no connections from Japan to Sakhalin (and vice-versa) except for flights and by sea travel.

I was hoping that the Japanese government would at least provide funding for a USD$50 billion link between Sakhalin and Hokkaido. Or if not, some construction company could at least come up with funding.

That would be neat and would help both Japan and Russia through the Hokkaido-Sakhalin rail and landbridge link (especially to Sakhalin)

Although Hokkaido has the famous Asahikawa Furniture showrooms (they make presentations at Milano Salone and Köln Messe every year), there is also a number of Scandinavian stores as well. They are purely Sapporo only showrooms, and you cannot find them elsewhere in Japan. IKEA opened in Chiba and Yokohama this year, but I don't think it will ever come to Hokkaido's market. It's already enough for that category here.

There are quite many Russian signs in Hokkaido, even in some Mcdonald's. Bloody hell!

It will never happen. The government has already spent astronomically for Hokkaido, whose total amount of debt is over 600 billion yen, the third largest in the country after Tokyo and Osaka (and the second largest per head). I even doubt whether Shinkansen reaches Sapporo in the near future. We don't need them really, rather, should be spent for expanding Chitose Airport, which can potentially become the largest airport in Japan.

Hokkaido gets a lot of hints from Scandinavia. The motto is however, do not immitate them but to absorb them to match the life style in Hokkaido. But clearly there are many borrowings from Scandinavia.

Sweden Hills (Sapporo's suburb), Sweden's king visited for its plan of the town.

500 meter tower for Sapporo??

http://www.hokkaido-np.co.jp/Php/bac...0061109&j=0035

Study group formed for Sapporo TV Tower skyscraper project  2006/11/09 13:58

Hokkaido Kanko Jigyo, the managing company of Sapporo’s 147.2-meter-high landmark structure -- the Sapporo TV Tower -- will form a study group in the near future with outside specialists to consider reconstructing the tower into a skyscraper. Taking advantage of the 50th anniversary of the sending of radio waves in December, the company intends to discuss the project with a view to rebuilding the tower into a 500-meter-high building.

The plan has been made with the aim of regaining the position as the tallest building in Hokkaido way into the 21st Century. The glory is currently held by the 173-meter-high JR Tower in Chuo Ward, Sapporo, which started business in 2003. By reconstructing the tower into a building, sports facilities and offices among others will be able to occupy the building as well as its present shops and sightseeing facilities. In addition, it is also intended to claim back the function of sending TV waves, which was handed over to Mt. Teine (elevation: 1,024 m).

The society was founded by the company, employees of major general contractors, specialists in city planning and financial-related experts. The possibility of reconstruction will be probed while examining construction methods and financing techniques.
