In a move very uncharacteristic of japanese rail my train to Wakkanai was cancelled. A bit of a setback, but things could be worse. Ran into one of the guests from my hostel and we went and grabbed some delicious sushi. I had to change hostels tonight, but the new one is literally right across the street so it’s not a problem.
Tomorrow I will for sure leave for Wakkanai. I hope, at least.
