Hokkaido 5 北海道
This morning we decided to visit a few museums in Asahikawa to add a little "culture favour" to our tour.
But before that, we visited a Catholic Church simply named after the road name (Road 6 Catholic church).
We went to International Dyeing (left) and weaving Art Museum, Yukara Ori Craft Museum in order to know the textile and dress culture of Japanese. We also visited Snow Crystal Museum which is adjacent to the above 2 museums.
We found a nice place in a park to have our lunch.
After lunch we started our journey north to Wakkanai, the northern most city of Japan. We decided to take the western coastal road in order to see the beautiful scenery along the way. We were not disappointed ... blue sky, blue sea and cool weather.(let the pictures do the talking)
We arrived at Wakkanai at about 6:30 pm. It was a five-hour, 250 kms journey. When the wind blow, we feel very cold. Tonight's temperature is around 14 degree C. (Too tired to write, please see Facebook for more pictures)
不过，我们先去拜访了一间天主教堂。这教堂就以本身所在地路为名 - 第六条教会。
