Orin and I took a trip to Lake Shikaribetsu. We took a short snowshoe walk, looked at the ice buildings, and took a bath in the outdoor onsen. I love looking at ice and snow sculptures – I think it’s amazing that we can make something so beautiful out of ice! Here is a picture of Orin and me in the onsen.
Coming home, we took pictures of the mountains around us. I really liked looking at the mountains with bare trees. In Seattle, all the forests are evergreen forests, so you will never see so many naked trees on a mountain. I think it is very beautiful.
This weekend, Orin and I will try to see the ice floes in Monbetsu. We want to ride on an ice cutting boat. Do you think we can see the ice? I hope so!
Also, our last concert is on March 12th. If you want one more chance to see us perform, you should sign up soon! Spaces are filling quickly, so you’d better hurry! Have a good weekend!
