These images were taken in Sapporo, Japan during a visit for a conference in October of 2005.  During this trip I also interned at the Tokyo Women’s Medical College in Tokyo, Japan.  Sapporo is located on the north island of Hokkaido.  It is also known globally for the beer that bears the city’s name “Sapporo Beer”.  The sign was located in the hotel we were staying at and for some reason we found the misspelling hilarious and still to this day is a little inside joke between my wife and I.  No Smorking!!!
