Spring time and summer time in Hokkaido is like a big paradise of nature. Once you leave Sapporo, the amount of beautiful scenery is everywhere. Rice paddies that stretches far, mountains, hills and it’s just something I don’t come across often enough. Especially if you’re from the city, daily life is just a big boombox of lights, over-crowding and traffic. So, the countryside will always make me feel at ease because it’s just so peaceful.
