Summer has come!!

It's been hot hot hot hot!! here in Sapporo, Hokkaido, these days. I'm exhausted(--;), however, how can you stay at home in such sunny days? Above all, I'm on a vacation, Yeahhhhh!

Did you know that you can enjoy lavender in Sapporo? and you can have a great view of Sapporo there, too! It's called "Horomi To-ge 幌見峠", a mountain path in the western part of the city.

Lavender is very famous plant grown up in Furano, which can bring thousands and thousands of people to see the wonderful, huge, beautiful field of lavender. I couldn't be bothered to drive from Sapporo to Furano for about 3 hours, but I desperated to shot pics of lavender!

I rushed to there after I heard about the path. I couldn't stop taking pics of the lovely scented flower in the bush, along with bees. My friend gave me chilly eye,,,,,gosh! I can't believe there are people who don't appreciate such beautiful nature.
