After the Nanboku line I decided to walk the Tōhō line. It is the shortest line and runs from Sakaemachi in the north to Fukuzumi down south. If you would like to follow on the map, search for ‘Sakaemachi stashion Sapporo’ and then just follow the subway line down. If you’re using the newest version of a certain online cartography service, it’s blue.
Probably the nicest subway station entrance in all of Sapporo. For Sapporo Station.
In many places it’s parallel to the Nanboku line so you might recognize some things.

It has been sunny and quite warm for a while now (‘warm’ being anything above freezing temperature) so the snow has been melting and by the time I write this most pavements are completely clear. Yay for walking without slipping.
Mushy slushy puddle pavement
There’s not much to say and most of you have asked for more pictures so I’ll stop talking now. (Many thanks by the way to anyone who gave feedback!) But if you want to read more there’s a Wikipedia article. If you’d rather watch a video, scroll right down.
Rarely ever been so excited to see gras
Guessing during winter this one holds packages of crushed rock to make pavements less slippery
Don’t ask me what this is supposed to be…
Creek no. 1
The cutest entrace
Looks cool but not sure if I’d want to live with those windows
Creek no. 2
A hotel that looks like it escaped Disney Land
Creek no. 3
Fancy picture of the Sapporo Clock Tower
Not a creek but Toyohira River
Those were on every lamp post along the whole road
Creek no. 4 right next to Fukuzumi Station
