Do you know the name of sub-prefectural area, “SORACHI” in Hokkaido?
You can see the beautiful scenery of rice field and vineyard in that area.
Only one-hour drive from Sapporo will bring you to the comfortable area to spend your weekend.
Do you like to enjoy nice wine with cheese watching the beautiful vineyard?
If you do, please visit this area with your family.
You can also enjoy weekend farming in this area with nice cottage.
If you are a sophisticated traveler and in the master level of journey, I will recommend you to visit the “curious” ruin of the coalmine in this area. You may be able to imagine the prosperity of coalmine industry of this area so many years ago.
But, first of all, please try the produce of agriculture in SORACHI with superior quality.
Have you ever heard of Numata Town where so fantastic lantern festival is held every year. I was so impressed by the crash of lantern wagons like a illusion. Believe me.
Please try the lantern festival in Numata where the top grade rice in Japan is produced.
