It was getting cloudy. I left Lake Shikaribetsu for Lake Nukabira that was located on the north of Lake Shilkaribetsu.
Different from driving with my wife,I could spend my time as I liked. I could take my time enough but I felt something different.
This is Hotel Fuusui from the lake-side deck. I've never stayed in this hotel before. But I stayed in Hotel Fukuhara with my wife three times before our marriage and after. Minerva Art Museum was so nice to kill time in winter.
Can you see the mountain shaped like the upper rip ? With its reflection on the lake, the silhouette of the mountain is like a rip so the Mountain is called Kuchibiru Yama which means Mt. Rips in Japanese.
Please enjoy driving with me.
The small lake near Lake Shikaribetsu seemed to be hidden in the forest. Two small lakes are near Lake Shikaribetsu.
It has been five years or so since I had enjoyed a drive without my wife. In a sense, the drive to Tokachi and one-night stay without my wife was an adventure for me.
