After leaving the cozy hotel in Shimamaki Village, we drove to Niseko Area and parked our car near the entrance of the trail to Shinsen-numa Marsh and headed to Mt. Chise-nupuri that has the same name as my wife.
My wife's first name is the namesake of the word that means "house" in the language of the indigenous people in Hokkaido Ainu.
My wife is not the descendant of the tribe but her mother, my mother in law paid respectto the deities of this island and the native Hokkaido.
Please put on the bell to avoid bear-attack.
