BEAUTIFUL SCENERY IN HOKKAIDO.

There is a lot of awesome scenery in Hokkaido. We stayed 3 days by the Lake Toyako.

                                        洞爺湖の近くで過ごしました。

It started a volcano from 1943~1945AD.

We stayed this hotel at the top of the hill.

ホテルは丘の上にあります。

The first class hotel in Hokkaido.

かなり高級なホテルです。

A rainbow welcomes us.

虹が私たちを歓迎して呉れました。

We heard the live performance of the harp at the lobby.
My wife requested Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel.

妻がパッヘルベルのカノンをリクエストしました。

The live performane of the flute too.

My favorite classical music is Violin Sonata No.9 (Kreutzer Sonata) by Beethoven.

妻が色鉛筆でスケッチしました。

We got on this seightseeing boat at night to see the fireworks.

夜は遊覧船で花火の見物です。

The fireworks were lanuched by a running ship.

走行中の船から花火が打ち上げられます。

Our boat were chasing the firework launching ship.

The fireworks were very near for us.

とても近くで花火を見る事が出来ました。

  8. こんにちは、ウィンザーホテルからの眺めは抜群ですね。「ホテルエイペックス洞爺」という名前で運営していた頃は、景色は抜群でしたが、ハープの演奏も、フルートの演奏も無かったです。確かセコムの子会社が土地建物を買い、経営が変ったのですが、その後は、有名レストランも入り、素晴らしいホテルになりました。ところで奥様のスケッチはお上手ですね。パステルや油もやられるのですか。他の作品も見てみたいです。

       こんばんは。このホテルはセコムの関連会社がどこかのホテル運営会社に経営を委託しているという話は聞きましたが、定かでは有りません。
       妻はパステルや油絵はやっていません。 お褒めの言葉を伝えておきます。
       このホテルに2回続けて行ったので、今度はだいぶ先にしようと思っています。
