  11. I love the mountain view and Otosara river bridge with green waters! It is so green and unique to me. I wonder how it could be so green. I would be excited to see the fox too! It is cute.

    You really enjoy good and luxury life to have your own private tub to soak! The view is so fabulous and I could dip inside all day!

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。 最近、日本人のブロガーの人のコメントが減って、日本語を省こうかとも思ったりします。

    2. 日本語はやはりホッとします。
      私は6年前、つたない英文ブログでスタートしましたが、最近は日本語を加えるようにしています。
      日本人のsilent readers がきっといる事と思います。

  22. 北海道はいいですね。北海道で行きたいところリストが増えてます。あまり寒い時には行きたくないと思うと時期が限られてくるのが、ネックですね。 温泉がある場所というのはかなりの魅力です。特に露天風呂付の部屋は最高ですが、お値段がねえ、、、溜息。
    今日はコンピューターの調子が悪く、ポストが出来なくて、気分を壊していたのですが、美しい風景写真で慰められました。 これからも素晴らしい日本を紹介してください。
