  • A short trip to Hokkaido.

    My better half decided to ROAST me . Booked me to Hokkaido to see Lavender Flowers in the HOT summer..As if it's not hot enough here at home (thank goodness she is not in this forum..)

    On arrival after a night flight, (me still groggy from the 6+ hours flight) we were to visit a Ninja Village.







    The place is clean thanks to this hardworking lady.


    And you have to be really careful as there are ninjas lurking is ....

    And like all Japanese, the surroundings are really kept properly and a lot of efforts are made it look balanced.





    And even the flowers are...

        From there on to the Nixe Marine park, Tiredness set in and that em1.2 with that 12-100 was just too heavy to hold.





        All the dolphin act was blur.

          Very interesting set and enjoyable viewing.
          The ice cream stand in my favourite. 2.40 for an green tea ice cream seems very reasonable for Japan!
          Stuff from Cuba

              After that was to the Lake Toya. This lake does not freeze even during winter as it's on a volcanic area. It's scenic and also a recreational area for the locals

                              From there to the City of Sapporo. A short walk around Odori park,


                              (Bad Photog..did not adjust camera correctly)





                              Hopefully in the near future I will have a chance to visit this area during the Snow Festival.
