    I enjoyed 1-day drive to Shintoku, “the Center of Gravity of Hokkaido.”
    Driving on the expressway takes me to the destination faster, but I love to drive on the local roads seeing the magnificent view of Hokkaido and stop by at place to place.

    My first destination was “Kyodo-Gakusha”, people living there raise cattle and produce dairy products and vegetables. There is a forest once I saw in fairytales and a garden in my childhood.

    To enjoy my lunch, I headed to the next destination, “Soba-no-yakata.” It was so delicious so that I forgot to take pictures what I ordered! The last and the most destination was “Sahoro bear mountain”, a bear sanctuary. Ainu people, the natives of Hokkaido associate brown bear with god. I was little nervous to get there. I got on the protected bus and enter the forest where preserved bears live.

    Wow, I needed to pass 2 sturdy doors to enter their forest. A ranger followed our bus…I had never seen such a protected car through my life!

    The bus driver drove winding road to watch bears. There is a bear enjoying bathing!

    I  instinctively felt that I need to run away!

    The way back, I drove on highway and visited “service area”, transport cafes. After arrived my house, I enjoyed telling story and eating raclette and Soba noodles had bought for dinner with my family.

    How wonderful day it was!
    I am dreaming next journey, to the east part of Hokkaido.
