Yesterday was one of those mornings you wake up and just get that ‘wow’ feeling, it’s the feeling that makes you love to live here and makes you appreciate Hokkaido’s summer. Having spent 3 weeks in Honshu recently it was great coming back to Hokkaido and realising that summer really does get perfect weather (sometimes!).
Yesterday was shorts and t-shirt weather right from sunrise, I went for a drive around the farms and checked out the farmers all squeezing out their last crops before Autumn, everything is still lush and green and bursting with life and soaking up the sun while it’s here! I love the quaint little farm houses, the perfectly manicured crops and just the whole feeling of Niseko in bloom over summer. Hirafu Matsuri today and after a torrential downpour it looks like another perfect sunny afternoon! Yeah Summer!
