The paper is preparing stories about the Olympics....and was looking for British people, who live in Sapporo. Kokusai Plaza introduced me :-)
Really the reporter telephoned me to ask where British people will go and meet and enjoy the Olympics...here in Sapporo. Well, that's hard - there is no British community here, and no one place we all gather.
Of course many people (Japanese and non-Japanese) go to some of the popular sports bars in Odori to watch international events on bigscreen TVs: TK6, Jersey Bar and Brian's Brew are popular bars.
But, when she heard that I am GOING to the Olympics AND that my grandparents used to live in the area of London where the Olympic Park has been built....she jumped in the car and came to Imagine to interview me!
So...watch the Hokkaido Newspaper....you may find a little story about me.
