We had to say "Good-bye" to General Winter who brought heavy snow fall to the eastern part of Hokkaido.
My business jaunt was so tough considering my health condition and the harsh weather that hit the islands I visited.
The train passed the train station in Toyoshimizu. I could not see anybody nor any houses.around the station.
The river seemed to connect the lands and people in the northern region even if they were frozen up. This is what I have been loving and I love. Thanks , God ! It should be loved and guarded by us forever !
