Remembering the warm and comfortable season in Hokkaido, here I post the photos of the bay area of Hakodate City.
I think living in Hakodate City is so nice and exciting , particularly around bay area. Now that the actual center part of the city is around the old citadel "Goryoukaku", the bay area does not seem to be so flourished.
So heavy snowfall hit Sapporo City in this December. The total amount of the snowfall was for the first time in the past 50 years.
I jog around in the central area of Sapporo City every morning before dawn and after sunset. It was as if the limelight lighted up the natural snow art.
The snow flakes are called "Rikka" or Rokka" that means flower that has six petals in Japanese. Have you ever sen the snow flakes, the flower of snow ?
This is what Hawaiian people can not see in their state, isn't it, Dennis, Luis, Kelianne and other friends in Hawaii ?
At the temperature of 1 to 3 degrees in Celsius, such kind of natural snow arts are made.
I jogged to the railway station in Hakodate City in the morning. I love to jog around the bay area of Hakodate City. This is in front of the railway station.
Jogging around in Hakodate City, I found the first coffee roasting machine near the hotel. It seems that the machine was made in 1935 in Hokkaido.
Sea urchin and salmon roe might be a little too fatty for late dinner but the taste was so nice and so this "Saikyo Yaki" of sliced cod.
Looking back the spring of this year, I once visited Hakodate City to pick up my wife who had to use the bullet train because the flight she had been booked was cancelled.
