You Never Know Who You Will Meet

We can’t walk in the forest because of the bear, so we took a walking route to the train station and around the downtown area.  We met up with two University students who bike to the station, then take the train to Sapporo where they live.

Later we saw a fairly large group of people gathering, along with some official vehicles and security men, so we hung around to see what was going on.

We don't know exactly what it was all about, but it was something to do with next month's snap election of the lower house of parliament.
You just never know who you will meet when you are out and about.

  1. Nice to meet people you actually know (the students) and others that you recognise (the politician). His name is Natsuo Yamaguchi and is the leader of New Komeito Party, which is a religious political party. You can read about them here:
