Very beautiful interpretation! 🙂
Beautiful pics! Even more so that it was only yesterday i booked a ticket to visit Hokkaido for my nephews wedding in a few months and i’ve never been so i got really excited when i saw these images : )) Trees
Ah Trees – wishing you a journey with rich experiences. It’s a fascinating country.
Oh wow, I wonder what they’re growing, marigolds maybe, and why, they can’t be for cutting.
The first sight of these incredible vistas is a whole sense of delight – yes lots of marigolds – in all tones of palest yellow to deepest orange. Also a magnificent variety of flowers – all for colour effect and planted to attract tourists / visitors. In winter the fields are covered in snow; an annual planting for a summer show.
I thought I recognised Furano – it’s famous for its lavender fields. I remember heading out that way when I was working in Obihiro back in 1991.
That’s a while ago – guessing the multi-coloured flower fields are a later tourism development? I found the botanical garden at Torachi fascinating – wind, water and earth elements.
I suppose they came along later to try and attract more tourists outside of the skiing season.
Absolutely phenomenal, Liz. 🙂
Glorious images of typically perfectly ‘manicured’ landscapes that the Japanese excel at!
