I didn't travel so far away during the Golden Week holidays.

↑I went to Goryokaku Park (五稜郭公園) to see cherry blossoms. I took some photos from the opposite side of the usual one.

↑Although Goryokaku (五稜郭) is famous in Hakodate, there is also Shiryokaku (四稜郭) in Hakodate. I went there for the first time. There were few people there.

↑Ishizakijinushikai Shrine (石崎地主海神社) is also famaous for cherry blossoms.

↑There were many double-cherry (八重桜) trees in front of the gate, but it was too early.

↑I then went to eat icecream located between Ishizakijinushikai Shrine (石崎地主海神社) and Hakodate Airport.

↑The view from Kijihiki Highland (きじひき高原) was breathtaking. You can see Mt. Komagatake (駒ケ岳), swamps called Onuma (大沼) and Konuma (小沼), and so on.
There was a melody road nearby. I caught its melody was Akatonbo.

I then had dried curry and rice for lunch at a restaurant.

The dried curry had many kinds of ingredients. It was delicious.

After I came home, I had a piece of apple pie I had made yesterday and a cup of coffee. I used some ready-made pie sheets though.

I had a good time today.

Autumn Leaves 2016

I went to see autumn leaves.
I couldn't go there last year because some bears were spotted. I was a little scary, but I was pleased to see that leaves were very beutiful.
Some bugs like snow (Yukimushi in Japanese) were flying. It is said in Hokkaido that the snow starts to fall soon after the bugs fly.

This morning, I made some pizza and pumpkin soup.

The Hokkaido Shinkansen (bullet train) has just left the Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto Station. The parking fee at the station is free.
The station is not in Hakodate city but in Hokuto one.

It's getting cold here in Hokkaido.

Shakotan Peninsula

shakotan peninsla


One day, I watched a TV show, which introduced sea urchin in Shakotan Peninsula.
Usually, the color of sea urchin is yellow, but the one introduced on TV was reddish yellow.
I felt like trying it.

The other day, my mother-in-law and my family went to Shakotan Peninsula by car.

IMG_0349_convert_20160820113712.jpg

We walked through a small and no light tunnel.

IMG_0297_convert_20160820113858.jpg

IMG_0301_convert_20160820113956.jpg

It was scary in the tunnel, but there was a breath taking view out of the tunnel.

IMG_0327_convert_20160820114407.jpg

IMG_0310_convert_20160820114747.jpg

I wanted to go down and touch the sea water, but I had to step down a long steep path. I tried to do, but I gave up in the middle. Because, I thought that it would be more difficult for me to come back. Besides, no one in my family tried it. They were waiting for me for a long time.

We then walked to see a lighthouse.

IMG_0332_convert_20160820114901.jpg

The sign said that beware of bears. I was scary again.

IMG_0338_convert_20160820115200.jpg

Beyond the lighthouse, the view was also magnificent.

On the way back, there was a candle rock (ローソク岩) in the sea.

IMG_0359_convert_20160820115418.jpg

If you are lucky, you could see the sun on the tip of the rock as if it were a candle.


After all, I couldn't eat the sea urchin in Shakotan Peninsula. It was so expensive. No one in my family wants to eat it. My mother-in-law recommended me, but I turned it down.
Instead of that, I ordered inexpensive sea urchin at a reasonable sushi restaurant on the way back home.
It was good though.

I will go there again to touch the sea water and eat reddish yellow sea urchin someday.
