In the summer holidays we went to Sapporo, in Hokkaido, for a week to study Japanese at a little school. We went because we thought Sapporo would be nice, and that the weather would be slightly milder (this year's summer = the hottest on record). Both of these things were true. We were studying a lot of the time so we didn't do a lot of sightseeing, but here are some things that we did see.
We took a 15-hour ferry ride back to Sendai, and slept in a big tatami room with dozens of other people. It was actually pretty fine though!
