    Swans Warming Up/Teshikaga

    I'm sure you can come to Hokkaido next winter, when the swans come!
    "Lake Kussharo" in Teshikaga, Eastern Hokkaido. Swans fly in from October through April every year.
    Because the hot spring gushes out, it does not freeze. You can watch the swans resting their wings up close!

    Playing in the Snow, It's so Fun!/Sapporo

    Snow falls when winter comes, next winter, too.Let's build a snowman together!
    Coming into March, it's getting warmer. This is the best time to build a snowman with Hokkaido's snow.
    When it's too cold, the snow is fluffy, so it doesn't clump together.

    The Former Hokkaido Government Office Red Brick Building on a Sunny Morning/Sapporo

    This place is usually full of tourists in many colorful jackets in this season.This morning Taiwanese and Thai tourists came. COVIT-19 will settle down soon!
    Due to the former government office red brick building being under maintenance, you are not able to look inside until March 2023.
    However, you can see it in its entirety until summer, due to the Tokyo Olympics marathon event (August) marathon course taking place in Sapporo. After that it will be covered and no longer visible for some time. By all means, please come to take a picture of the beautiful former government office red brick building.
