From the lookout of the loop bridge in Asarigawa !
From the lookout on the tip of the loop bridge, the blue ocean could be seen between the hills of Asarigawa Valley.
My favorite hot spring bath and hotel "Kampo-no-yado" that had been run by Japan Post was still in service albeit other "Kampo-no-yado" had been sold to the private sector.
Every time I visit a huge dam in Hokkaido, I am struck by the technologies and intestinal fortitude required to build the fabulous structure.
My former superior said that he experienced to control this kinds of dam constructed by Hokkaido Government and to live in the depth of valley in his young age.
I really admire his personality that extract the very best of performance of his subordinate!
