I came to Hokkaido and more than a week passed.
I think that Hokkaido is very wide again.
The heavy rain in the past few days has taken a little break.
Strong rain beat SUBARU Legacy ‘s roof, but as I listened to rain sounds I felt asleep.
Last night’s undercarriage was a road station in the Makubetsucho “Churui”
It was raining when I woke up in the morning.
The station on this road seems to be built on the former site where the fossil of the “Nauman elephant” was found in Old Chuangli village.
There was a “Nauman Elephant Memorial hall” in the immediate vicinity.
Nauman Elephant Memorial hall
By the way admission fee is 200 yen per person by JAF discount. I felt ancient romance!
After that, I bought a bread using the famous “lily root” at a nearby bakery.
“Lily Rain’s White Sandpoon” and “Lily Root Puff Purse”
Neither taste nor tasty.
It is a popular product that both will be sold out if you do not buy it early in the morning.
When the weather is bad, it’s a day of washing!
There are coin laundries in various places in Japan.
When the weather is bad and you can not do sightseeing, washing is a long trip trip
It is strong. I wash and dry for 4 days in 1 hour.
I also want home.
There is always rain on a long journey, but at such times I rested slowly, I wash and learned how to spend time in the rain.
After the washing, the rain is rising and it is cloudy.
I also headed for an indoor spot so that it might rain again.
Ikeda Wine Castle
On the way to Ikeda Town “Ikeda Wine Castle”
Here you can learn about the factory tour and the history of Tokachi wine.
We had a tour of the wine manufacturing factory.
View from the rooftop. I wonder if it is sunny it will be more beautiful.
Outside the vineyards of wine’s ingredients had spread‥
It seems to be delicious even if you eat it as it is.
This time it was a car so I could not taste the wine, but it is an irresistible spot for wine lovers.
DCT Garden IKEDA
This DCT garden is a memorial hall of Miwa Yoshida, a dreams come true vocal from Ikeda-machi.
There were lots of original goods such as concert costumes and inside.
(There are no pictures for shooting prohibition)
Dreams come True is a famous musician in Japan‥
I bought a lot of goods …
Then proceed the car aiming for the next destination, Furano · Biei direction.
Obihiro City “CAFE ROWA”
Even though it was a weekday, the customers were full.
Continuous driving makes me tired, so I will keep going for a break like this.
I wanted to eat sweet things, and I ordered…
It seems that Tokachi wheat is used as a raw material so it fits coffee.
We had delicious.
After the break we crossed the “day wins pass” to aim for the inland section.
A lot of cars which seemed to be in the car were stopped.
I will go a little further from here.
to be continued.
