Kamome Island could be seen clearly from the seaside road to Esashi Town in Hiyama Sub-Prefectural area of Hokkaido. I had lived there for three years and half until March of 1994.
I dropped off my wife at the venue of their Japanese traditional tea ceremony in which all the tea party masters got together and exchange information to run their tea schools.
Living around such beautiful park from where ships going in and out of the port can be seen must be so nice for me. The gardening design of the park is so impressive.
I am back from Hawaii that Hokkaido will establish a friendship affiliation coming May. Sorry for failing to update the information of Hokkaido because of the Internet inconvenience.
So, I continue to tell about Hakodate City again.
The building of former Public Hall in "Hakodate District" was refurbished a few years ago and regained the original beauty. Various kinds of meeting and parties were held in this building before.
The photo of bronze statues I posted yesterday shows the founder of the port city. The figures are described as the four kings of the city. The planning of this park might be arranged under the order of such top dogs.
Above is the information center in Motomachi Park of Hakodate City. This park is on the hillside of Mt. Hakodate. So beautiful flowers of azalea decorate the park every year.
Above is the seafood wholesale market in the bay area of Hakodate City. Near the market, there are so many warehouse made of red bricks. Canals were used for loading before.
Crawling up this slope to the hillside of Mt. Hakodate may be a little bit tough for seniors and even for youngsters who don't like exercise.
It can be said that this is my regular course for jogging in Hakodate City early in the morning. I love the aroma of the ocean.
The name of the morning eatery is "Kikuyo Shokudoh". Grilled seafood and a variety of rice-bowls topped with top-quality seafood are the big draw of the eatery and the district.
