Back from an 8 day road trip to the main island! It was amazing, our timing could not have been better. We got to Akita by ferry and found the temp’s cold, like really cold, Hokkaido kind of cold! We spent a week at Tazawako ski area and it was impressive. Great snow, great terrain and the hot springs were incredible! More about that area in a later post. for now check out the photos from our last day on the main island in Aomori prefecture. The famed yet still relatively undiscovered gem Hakkoda-san.
Famed for the snow monsters, massive fir trees caked in snow, they are truly amazing to see up close. We got so lucky with a sunny morning, just enough time to snap a few photos and video, then the clouds moved in for the rest of the day.
Mino taking a break.
