I am so sorry to have kept you waiting !
This is the photos of current outskirt of Iwamizawa City. Do you think that the queue of poplar makes a good contrast with white field as monotone works ?
I was on my way back from Yubari City which mayor I posted yesterday.
If I could prepare complete Haral, would you visit our island Hokkaido to be held in the white snow ?
I will be able to post the photos of the eastern part of Hokkaido next week because I come back to my hometown Kitami tomorrow.
Please have great holidays and new year !
Please be with your family or precious be-loved !
The young leader was explaining about the project to make the most of the local resource in Yubari City that had gone bankrupt five years ago.
His name is Naomichi Suzuki. He was selected as one of the young leaders who would led the world.
The points of the project is "Coal Bed Methane" that is contained in the layers of coal and "Compact City" by making use of "Dual Mode Vehicle"that can carry people on the road and the railway.
Actually, he is working hard in spite of his low income for a mayor. The bureau of firefighters in Yubari City was accused of cheating and he had to reduce his salary to take responsibility.
Some citizens give good supports to the young mayor while the megalopolis Tokyo have given him some able staff as well as the occasions to advertise the municipality.
But the small city is still shrinking even now.
He needs money and able strategist to make his vision come true.
Before that I would like to invite him to our holiday feast providing the culinary delight shown on this blog.
Have a rest and great holidays !
Kudos to Mr. Suzuki !
The hamburger shop group "Lucky Pierrot" has over ten branch shops in Hakodate City and Esashi Town. The flagship shop of the group is in Nanae Town.

Thanks God we seemed to be able to end this year in peace and happiness.
Have a great holidays !
This graveyard is for foreigners who passed away in Hakodate City. The bay and the coastline of Hakodate City can be seen from the cemetery. It is a good place to have an eternal rest and remember the happy days with the person.
There is a local convenience store group that is in cooperation with Seiko Mart . The skewered grilled chicken with the special original sauce.
To be surprised, some tourists from abroad were buying the lunch boxes for themselves. The store might have been introduced in the guide books.
The lunch box is below.
This is the sign of the monument raised for the souls of Mr. Toshizou Hijikata who belonged to the guard of Kyoto and other fallen Tokugawa Shogunate warriors that amount to approximately eight hundred.
It is about 230 meters from this sign to the monument.
At the end of the working day this year, I think of the people who were eager to live their lives.
Have a great holidays !
This is the old graveyard near the Cape Tachimachi of Hakodate City. Very famous poets are sleeping in this area.
