Hokkaido 4 北海道

Grateful thank God for giving us good weather in Asahikawa, I prayed that the typhoon that ravaging southern Japan would blow over soon and causes minimum damage.

Asahikawa is the second largest city in Hokkaido. It is clean and peaceful. I saw workers picking every speck of waste or paper from the street early in the morning. The roads and streets are superbly clean.

Within the city itself offers not much for tourists, so we went out today for a day nature and scenic tour.

We took the Patchwork & Panoramic roads from Asahikawa to Biei. We saw rolling hills planted with various crops in different shed and colors - wheat, potatoes, padi, reddish.....

Later we travel out to the mountains to visit wonders of nature - The Daisesusan National Park mountain ranges and waterfalls.

We ended our day by going to Ramen Village in Asahikawa to have authentic Japanese Ramen as dinner..... Oishi desu ne!!

In Hokkaido so far, tourist places visited offer free parking and public amenities. People are polite, friendly and helpful.

With an English speaking GPS, occasionally speaking Japanese which I do not understand a word of it, we manged to navigate ourselves quite well in Hokkaido.

Tomorrow, we are leaving for Wakkanai, the northern most city of Japan.

过后,我们离开旅游区,到山丘区去-- 大雪山森林公园区里的山脉和瀑布。

我们每天都很早出,天黑了才回来。今天,我们决定到旭川市区内的拉面村享用道地的日本拉面。。。Oishi desu ne ! (美味极了 !)



明天我们将前往稚内,日本最北端的城市。 更多照片FACEBOOK (点击此)
