Summer Gateway in Hokkaido: Prologue

Irodori Field, Tomita Farm

Summer in July, 2017

Tokyo during summer is “engep”. Yes! It’s very hot, humid and barely no wind (if there’s a wind, it’s typhoon or it’s a hot wind, which means is useless you wing your hand fan!) So we decided to have short getaway to Hokkaido, where’s the weather as not as humid like here.

Winter Trip #1: Shirakawa-go

Winter in January 2017

This year I visited Shirakawa-go in early January and only have 3 days 2 nights to travel,  so we decided to go to Shirakawa-go, Kanazawa and Takayama. By the time I visited it wasn’t completely covered with snow which is good since it’s still in the early season. Also, it was my first experience to see, touch and play with snow (Tokyo doesn’t get snowy in winter). Unfortunately we didn’t get the chance to stay there––it was full-booked.

What is in your mind when you hear Shirakawa-go?

Wonderful 2016

It may sounds like a Tourism’s Slogan from a country where I live in nowadays, but 2016 was definitely an endless discovery for me.

God answers your prayer in three ways:
He says yes and gives you what you want,
He says no and gives you something better,
He says wait and gives you the best.
