When in Rome... go slower than the speed limit. Or double it, like the truck drivers. If you cannot see more than a few feet in front of you, stop in the middle of the street. It is also OK to park along the side of a narrow street as long as you are just visiting a vending machine or stopping in for a quick ramen. Do not turn on red. Wait. The Japanese call this, "gaman". The steering wheel is called a handle. The hood is a bonnet. Your turn signal is called a winker. The green road costs money and the petrol station robots don't spreken ze english. Be careful out there. There is very low tolerance for DUI or DWF in Hokkaido. There are speed traps everywhere, do not be distracted by the beautiful potatoes. The most important thing is drive safe and stay on the road. I am on a mission from God.
