The Hokkaido self-drive experiece 4 北海道自驾体验

4. Asahikawa to Wakkanai (with Video)

Asahikawa was the longest staying place for us, 3 nights all in total.

Afer 2 nights in Asahikawa, we were moving northward to Wakkanai, the most northern city of Hokkaido and Japan. We would stay one more night when we return from Wakkanai.

Before starting our journey, we visited a Catholic Church at the Road six, which the church was named after. We met the parish priest who 0nly spoke Japanese. All our 4 other non-Christian friends accompanied us into the church and have a moment of silent ... for two of us, have a short adoration of the Lord.

We also visited 3 museum which were cloistered togather- the Ice Museum and 2 Japanese fabric museum.

After a picnic lunch at a park, we left for Wakkanai by taking the coastal road.

The scenery was breathtaking. It took us more than 4 hours to cover the 150 km journey due to many stopovers.

We have our own-cooked delicious seafood dinner and rested early.
