6th stay in onsen hotel. Extended fireworks after dinner.
Dropped by Muroran – a seaport and coastal landscapes for the first time.
Arrived at Shikotsu-ko for 5th stay. Locals were having water sports along the Chitose stream and in the lake.
Picked a cosy onsen hotel on the lakeside with only 10 rooms. There are 2 rotenburo shared by the staying guests on a first-come-first-served basis. View from our room was serene with a green garden, lake and mountains beyond. The Italian dinner was very delicious and sourced from seasonal produce in Hokkaido.
