« Spring | Main | Spring »


Yeah, it's been spring here in Hokkaido. It's awesome. Really. Above all, I don't have to whine about snow shoveling. Ha! Well, I like this time of year in Hokkaido. Blue skies and mild temperatures. It's free from the nasty Tsuyu (rainy season) that the rest of Japan suffers.

Living in Hokkaido, you'll be able to enjoy the clear changes of the seasons. It feels like the winter here is more winter-like than winter in general. And so, spring comes dramatically. Everything seems to spring up, literally, and everything looks bright. The brief, comfortable summer follows. The scenery in autumn is stunning to look at.

Sounds like I love Hokkaido, huh? I dunno.

Well, my wife has been in Nagoya as a yearly event. Deciding when to go there seems to be a tough matter for her. Once she did it in December, but caught a bad cold because it was too cold there. She went there in August, but it was too hot. She's thoroughly accustomed to the climate in Hokkaido.

She's back this afternoon.
