Good view
This morning we awakened in Hokkaido, enroute to Tomokomai for a bath. We'll proceed to Sapporo to catch the train heading back to Honshu, under the sea for the fourth time, and headed for the sleepy little village in the mountains where Hiromi is from. It's name is Kiryu, and we have many friends there, including, "DL", Hiromi's mom. Kiryu is also where Azumayama is located, the mountain I intend to climb in February with my friend, Gokan. We are nearing the end of our adventure, but there is still plenty more fun before we are through! Stay tuned!
