Blakiston's fish owl is very popular in Hokkaido but I've never seen the one in nature so far.
They are considered as sylvan deities by indigenous people in Hokkaido, Ainu.
This lady is holding her child inside her coat. The title was "Mother and her kid."
Waterworks could be seen between the original building of Hotel TSURUGA and the annex TSURUGA Wings.
The vertical lines of water led us to the world of deities absolutely different from that in the main island of Japan. The sounds made by the small waterfall soothed our nerves and made us forget the house chores and the conflicts in the business world.
A couple of wings were beside the water lines. I could imagine the sound of powerful flaps heading to the blue sky.
The wings were heading to the different directions in the foyer-like space between the building.
Some kinds of art works were exhibited on the wall of the isle and lighted-up.
The photos of beautiful mountains in Akan are could be seen as well.
The annex building had a deck on the third floor where the guests could feel the winds after enjoying the bathing.
