These photo was taken in the morning of January 3(Fri.). I love to see my home town from this hillside since I was a chubby kid.
At that time there was a hospital run by Hokkaido Prefectural Government and tuberculous inpatients were cured calmly on this hillside.
I can not remember if this greenhouse was here in my infancy but tropical rain-forest trees can be seen inside the house and they might ease the pain brought by the disease and hospitalization.
I can remember that many rainbow trouts were raised on the premises of the hospital years ago but no pool nor fish are there now.
It was minus 15 degrees in Celsius this morning !
