Lake Toya 洞爺湖

Finally, they reached the Lake Toya for lunch time ! This area is famous for its lake (obviously) but also for the volcanos around…Anyway, the weather wasn’t that great…but it didn’t stop Fujipon for having a good time! (╹◡╹)
結局お昼の時間に洞爺湖に着きました.このエリアは当然湖で有名ですが,周囲に火山があることでも知られています.天気はあまり良くなかったですが,ふじぽんの楽しい時間が終わることはありませんでした.

“High!”


After walking around the Lake and eating ramen nearby, Mary and Yotsu decided to…do some hiking with inappropriate shoes . Truthfully, they just wanted to see the west crater of the mount Usu because they didn’t have much time…however the road wasn’t what they expected…it was harder than what they imagined…
湖の周りを歩いて近くでラーメンを食べた後,まりとよつはハイキングをすることにしました...間違った靴で.時間がなかったので本当はただ有珠山の火口を見たかったのですが,道は思ったよりも険しいものでした・・・


Visitor “
“Let’s do our best!”

“That’s so vast!”

Fujipon was excited, but for him too it was exhausting.. (or not ( ̄∀ ̄))
ふじぽんも興奮していましたが,彼も疲れているようです・・・(違うかも)


“Wait! “” I’m tired -“


“Hmmhmm”- “Sigh”

Along the way, there were explanations about the place in english and japanese. The site has known many eruptions, the last one being in 2000.
道の途中で,英語と日本語で書かれた説明がありました.この場所はたくさん噴火があることで知られていて,一番近いものは2000年にありました.


After 20 minutes of walking, they reached the crater. The path was a bit scary and muddy to get up there, but it was a such a beautiful view that it was worth it ( ´∀`). They quickly took a picture and decided to go back, using a  short cut… that they didn’t find. ( ;∀;) . They lost a lot of time wondering which way they should take…
20分くらい歩いたあと,噴火口に着きました.道はちょっと怖くてぬかるんでいましたが,こんなに綺麗だったので来た意味がありました( ´∀`).早く写真を撮って,ショートカットを使って帰ろうとしましたが見つかりませんでした...どの道を通って帰るべきか迷っていたせいで,かなり時間を無駄にしてしまいました ( ;∀;).

‘Give me some!”
Mary had to calm her nerves by taking gum…which was immediately stolen by Fujipon!
まりはガムを食べて気分を晴らそうとしましたが,ふじぽんにすぐ取られました.


Anyway on their way back, they could see the ruins of old apartments.
After Mary said that it would be the perfect setting to shoot a horror movie, Fujipon got scared…
帰る道の途中で,火山の噴火によって朽ちた昔のアパートを見ました.
まりはホラー映画のセットとして完璧だと思いましたが,ふじぽんは怖がっていました...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Fufufufu”

The path was filled with beautiful flowers and leftovers of volcanic bombs. It was a peculiar image.
道は綺麗な花と火山噴火の名残で満ちていて,変な雰囲気でした.


“Potato?” –  “It was fun!”

After this tiring afternoon, they hurried to their next destination… a famous mushroom restaurant!
この疲れる午後の後に,次の目的地へ急ぎました...有名なキノコのレストレンへ!

 


On the road

 

“Rental car” “Watch out!” -“Bu bu”

Their next step was to go to the Toya Lake. Yotsu and Mary planned to use a rental car.
Again, it was the first road trip for Fujipon ! After trying the driver seat (which is on the right side ;)), he quietly put his safety belt. Safety first right?
次は洞爺湖に向かいます.よつとまりはレンタカーを使いました.
ロードトリップもふじポンにとっては初めてです.右側にある運転席をちょっと試した後に,後ろに座って静かにシートベルトを締めました.安全第一.


“Yeay!” – “Sigh-” – “The sea!”

The road to the Toya lake was around 4 hours long, so they stopped on the way to watch the sea…from afar. This time, Fujipon stayed on Mary’s lap…for a better view? ( ´ ▽ ` )
洞爺湖までは4時間かかったので,途中で海を見るために止まりました・・・遠くから.この時はふじぽんがまりの膝の上にいました,多分いい眺めのために.

“Toilets!”

What is amazing with Japan, is that you can find toilets everywhere, and they’re (almost everytime) clean. But be careful, because in Hokkaido, you might not find as many public toilets since you drive deep in the mountains …!
日本で驚くべきことは,どこでもトイレを見つけられて,(ほとんどの場合)とても綺麗です.しかし北海道では,山の中を運転するのでそれほど多くのトイレを見つけられないので気をつけてください・・・!


✮☾ SPECIAL HALLOWEEN ! ✮☾◥(ฅº₩ºฅ)◤

Fujipon, Neko-san and Pinguin-san wanted to party for Halloween… So we took the opportunity to take pictures again and wish you a Happy Halloween! (I know, we’re very late…)


At the Hotel 函館ホテル


“So big!”- “No, it’s okay”

During their whole trip to Hokkaido, the hotel in Hakodate was the only one they found that provided a japanese style room. It was the first time for Mary so she especially enjoyed the futon… as well as Fujipon. There was also a note written by the staff, wishing us a good stay.
北海道旅行で泊まった旅館の中で,函館のホテルだけが和風の部屋でした.まりにとっては和室が初めてだったので,布団を楽しみました・・・ふじぽんも.部屋にはスタッフが書いた宿泊のお礼と旅の応援のメッセージがありました.
