You can see farms and fields along both sides of the road. I love this typical scenery of the countryside in Hokkaido, which is peaceful and relaxing. Every time I come here, I feel as if I were in a totally different world. Surrounded by vast fields, I forget the busy life I normally lead back home. What matters here is the fact that I “live” now. In a sense, coming to Hokkaido means renewing my view of life.
