I think most of the people in Japan know and love Calpis, a kind of lactic acid drink that has been loved for years. But do you know Milpis on Rishiri Island ?
I think it is also a kind of lactic acid drink but I am not sure if stock breeding is conducted in the island. I have never seen cows there but the people need milk anyway.
I assume that in order to keep the milk on the island, lactic acid might be the most useful tool not to waste the milk carried in the island.
I am so sorry if any stock breeder were on the island.
The small lake Otadomari-numa is at the foot of the mountain.
The cloud over the mountain started to change its countenances before sunset.
But the white Mt. Rishiri kept its surface white and pale blue. Do you think it is so nice to see the beautiful mountains from the boat on the lake, listening the sound of the winds ?
It is still cold in Hokkaido but a lot of hot spring spa absolutely ease the pain you feel with your body and mind, I think.
Hit the road and get the pleasure!
