It gets really cold in Hokkaido, and it snows more than you might think. Go ahead, look it up on a map. THe island of Hokkaido is further north than Vladivostok and sits just below Sakhalin Island. Yet it's possible to get pizza delivered through the deepest snow, or will be, once the reindeer delivery program is in full swing. Yes, Domino's Pizza in Japan is rolling out delivery by reindeer. The animals and their drivers are in training on the grounds of a driver's school in the city of Ishikari. They seem to be learning the ropes pretty well.
I didn't see a red nose anywhere, did you? The program will launch in Hokkaido when the weather demands. You'll be able to track your reindeer pizza delivery by GPS. After a test period, reindeer delivery may go nationwide for Domino's Japan. -Thanks, John Farrier!
