Getting through Japanese Customs took over an hour and a half which delayed us from getting off the ship. Despite losing over an hour of time before we had to return to the ship, Kunihiro was able to adjust our day an maximize what we were able to see and do in Sapporo and Otaru. And he was able to adjust our itinerary when thunder storms were encountered during the day, Only a truely skilled guide could adapt and adjust as well as Kunihiro did. An excellent day was had by our group.
