Yesterday at the road station “hot spring of tulip” in the car
Of course, with hot springs, parking lot was wide and was comfortable.
Nearby there are old station buildings and railroads.
Recommended for train enthusiasts
Anyway it is a wide and beautiful road station. Hokkaido is amazing!
I made it to morning coffee for a moment.
The real thrill of the middle of the car is not bound by time.
What a nice morning.
After having gone slowly, I will drive the car east.
If I thought it was the ocean it was a lake! Lake Saroma
It’s a beautiful ocean – thinking so while driving…
I see it only in the sea…
It was a big big lake called Lake Saroma. Really realize the scale of Hokkaido’s scale!
Tour of Road Station
There were several road stations around Lake Saroma.
I will drop in as much as possible where I can.
Road Station “Love Land Yubetsu”
Impressively lonely if you look here only, but next to you …
There is such a play square in the vicinity! Recommended for children.
Road station “Lake Saroma”
Green is dazzling in the eyes. This is another beautiful road station.
Close to the sunflower field on one side. it’s beautiful !
Road station “Abashiri drift ice road”
After that, I came up to Abashiri.
It seems that drift ice will be seen from here in winter.
The sea is a man’s Romance!
Next time I want to come to see drift ice!
Oozora Town Hill of fairy tale
Then let Legacy go to Oozora Town.
And this scenery I came to see.
The blue sky, wide grassland (field), seven larchs on the hill.
Its name is also a hill of fairy tale.
Beautiful too! It is a picture scenery.
Space for photographs is prepared at the roadside so you can park your car and take pictures slowly.
“Hill of fairy tale” that shows various expressions according to the season
I also want to come back to different seasons!
Roadside station Memanbetsu
And near here is the road station of this Hill of fairy tale.
I had lunch here.
There was also such a field in the vicinity.
After that, I went to the nearby “Abashiri Prison”
This is a theme park which refurbished the actual prison site as a historical museum.
There are various buildings on the premises, you can know the history of Hokkaido’s cultivation.
This is a prison actually used.
There is atmosphere…
It is a doll that reproduces a bathing scene.
It looks like a real thing!
I will stay at a business hotel today.
Because I was a bit tired with the long-distance drive of the day and the car midnight, I decided to stay at Abashiri business hotel without impossibility.
It is still 5th day, the destination is still long. It is impossible for impossible for such a trip.
Check in early.
I stayed at Toyoko Inn tonight.
Toyoko INN is located all over the country and is a casually available hotel.
The bed feels good!
