Hakodate, Hokkaido...................

Visit to Onuma Park - island dotted lake, 
slight showers............

.....majestic dormant volcano, Mount Komagatake.

......cable car ride to high above the city......

....lovely local children performing songs and dances 
to say goodbye.


  1. Its a lake, trees and mountains, but it couldn't anywhere else in the world but Japan - lovely.

  2. The cable car ride gave such an incredible view of the city! Breathtaking!


  3. Gorgeous photos as usual, Mary! So different from Antarctica. Hope you're enjoying the trip -- safe travels!

  4. What a beautiful place. I love the first photos of the water and the soft colours. Then the bright colours of the children's clothing. Thanks for sharing and have fun! Hugs, Pamela

  5. How beautiful and serene it looks. Hard to imagine there are such tranquil spaces in such a populous country. Sweet children.

  6. Wow! Wonderful views and photos. Thanks.

  7. Gorgeous! This is one place I would love to visit. The reflection on the water is just beautiful!

  8. Oh Mary, these are wonderful photos !
    My son lived in Japan for 7 years, much of that time, teaching small children :)
    You must be having the time of your life .. besos ! C

  9. We loved this city too - spent an entire day walking - from the ship, through the indoor market, up to the cable car for the ride. I loved the street with several temples and churches, including the tiniest Russian Orthodox I'd ever seen!


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
