Why I Added Japan to my Bucket List!
Over the past two years, we have traveled over 30,000 miles. But, we have only been throughout the United States. It’s time we took a trip to another country. After searching where we might like to go, we discovered the beauty of Japan through the Japan site “Tsunagu Japan” and have decided on Japan. I came across 20 superb Hokkaido views and the scenery is simply amazing.
Living in Florida, I miss the beautiful and picturesque views that snow can create and even after living in one of the lake effect snow cities, I have never seen anything more amazing than snow covered trees or the Shirakaba Namiki where the road seems endless and mesmerizing.
If you stand under the Masumi Waterfall, it will feel like a massage and is one of Japan’s top 100 waterfalls. You can find a lake where the water is as blue as the sky without an explanation at Aoiike. But, it can change at any time, so this would be one of our first stops.
If you visit during the summer months, you can see a field of sunflowers that look simply amazing and you might even get lost within. But, the Takinoue Park will put a smile on your face when you breathe in the scent of the Phlox and breathe out with all your strength. The view is breathtaking.
However, if you get the chance to visit during January to mid February, then you will get a chance to see the Chitose – Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival where you will see huge original snow molds and the world of vivid color.
Did someone say beer? The Sapporo Beer Museum is at the top of the list of 10 must see spots in the Sapporo area and is something that I would love to see. Places like this are just amazing and with a half hour at the end of the tour to drink all the beer you want…might want to save that for a day of it’s own.
Another place that I would like to stop at is the Curb Market. With the freshest seafood anywhere, I would stop at one of the restaurants and have them prepare it for me because the Japanese know their food.
Besides beer…how about chocolate? Definitely one of my downfalls is chocolate and I can smell the chocolate factory already. There are no tours but you can make your own cookies. I’m in heaven just thinking about it.
I love old historical places and Historic Village of Hokkaido is must stop. A bus will take you to and from where you can see you a town, a fishing village, a farm village and a mountain village.
The scenery is beautiful and deserves to be seen by everyone and of all the places we have been, nowhere even compares to Japan. These are just a few of the places that intrigued me to add Japan to my bucket list. I would definitely plan to spend at least 2 weeks visiting in order to see everything.
