There are three ski resorts in Otaru.
Mt.Tengu ski resort, Asarigawa hot spring ski resort and Snow cruise ONZE.
I went to last one, ONZE to snowboard.
ONZE opens earliest every year in Otaru because they can make artificial snow.
That's why, Otaru people can enjoy skiing, snowboarding and winter activity even if it's at the beginning of November.
I went there by pick-up bus ↓↓
This bus runs anout every two hours from Sapporo.
Give me your idea for my costume!!
Cute!! Isn't she???
Her parents are Information staffs and photo studio's staffs.
These photos are processes of her birth.
Ms.Yoshida(Tourist information staff. Main mom.) starts to make a body.
Ummm...still her shape is strange...
Mr.Nakagawa tried to make her more beautiful. (He continued to caress her head:))
Finally, our new lovely staff was born!!!
She became popular.
In the night time, she becomes sexy surrounded by romantic snow lights.
If you have a good idea about her name, please post your comment on my page.
I'm looking forward to your idea!!!
A happy new year!!
How are you doing?? :)
I got new year's holiday 3 days, so I really enjoyed spending time with my family.
I'll show you some scenery of Japanese new year.
This is "Kagami-mochi".(Rice cake and mandarin orange)
Japanese people lay this "Kagami-mochi" on many places(house, workplace, garage and so on.)
This rice cake is sacrament for Japanese people.
I took this photo at the Otaru station.
If you come to Otaru in New Year's Holidays, you will see many kinds of "Kagami-mochi" at lots of places.
This decoration is also sacred and special thing of Japanese New Year.
We can see this decoration in front of the Otaru station.
