Surprise and discovery in Hakodate
by John Trochta, SAFS graduate student
Heat and humidity were not new to me, especially coming from a Seattle summer, but it still surprised me in Hakodate. I suppose the actual surprise didn’t occur until we arrived at the Japanese inn, where I eagerly expected the relief of air conditioning and didn’t find it. My room on the fourth floor was small and almost entirely empty, except for a short end table and a bundled Japanese futon (completely different from the American furniture piece of the same name).
