kenopps, I'm afraid that aurora is very very rare in Hokkaido. It is obserbed only once several years.

Yes, it's very rare to see the northern lights in Hokkaido and, even if you do, they aren't the colourful displays that you'd see in northern Canada for example. On a world geographic stage, Hokkaido isn't even really that far north. Actually its capital, Sapporo, is farther south than Venice, Italy, believe it or not - 43N vs 45N.

. . . Asahikawa, there is a Northern Lights Museum (I think it's called) near the textile museum. I recall seeing video of the phenomenon as well as 'Diamond Dust'.

The textile museum is pretty interesting too. Hard to imagine how they clothe all those little dolls. There is a hairline fit between the different cloths.
