Our Hokkaido Adventure

11月30日发布,2018年by Stephanie

I love nature.Don't get me wrong,我喜欢在城市里度过时光,但我已经明确地发现,在大自然中存在着某种东西,使我以城市从未有过的方式立足。万搏app大自然是一个纯粹的能量,romantic way – and by romantic I mean in the浪漫主义者sense: there's just something 万搏appabout the sublime beauty of the outdoors that is awe inspiring.I suppose it has something to do with the city Mike and I grew up in – there was always a forest to explore or a waterfall to hike to – the wild was never too far away.

我们对未受影响的原始自然的共同热爱是我们许多旅行的动力。有了如此多的旅行灵感,有时很难决定去哪里。我是说,cities always call because food,但有时你只需要离开灰暗和黑色的城市景观,逃到郁郁葱葱的野生绿地。就在我渴望远离城市生活的时候,we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel to Hokkaido,日本最北部的岛屿。北海道最有名的是土豆,乳制品(你好融化的芝士蛋糕馅饼!),请snow,以及大片原始的荒野。

I love Hokkaido,不仅仅因为这是土豆地,但因为它似乎是一个与自然完美平衡的地方。We spent four days exploring the Eastern side of Hokkaido: climbing mountains,paddling down rivers,在原始森林中徒步旅行,看着硫磺云从活火山喷发出来,每天醒来看日出,and best of all,擦玻璃。It was absolutely breathtaking.

我认为我们旅行中最喜欢的部分是秋天发生的事。如果你喜欢秋天——四季变换的清凉空气和绚丽的色彩展示树在进入冬眠前飘落——那么你应该去北海道。秋天是我最喜欢的季节,尽管它最终会导致冬天。I don't particularly like being cold and there's something 万搏appabout the switch between summer and fall that confuses my body (I never know what to wear when it's both sunny and cold),但是秋天太美了,所以它在我的榜单上名列前茅。

秋天离开日本,尤其是北海道,不在这个世界上。The very first of the fall leaves start in Hokkaido because it's the coldest island in the chain.Because of the unique North-South position of the islands,你可以从九月中旬一直追逐秋天的树叶,直到11月底到12月初。如果你认为樱花是你想在日本看到的,brace yourselves because I feel like the fall leaves are just as amazing,if not more.Just like the cherry blossom manbetx手机登录guide that tells you when the blossoms will arrive,日本人有一个方便up-to-date koyo (autumn leaves) manbetx手机登录guidethat let's you know when the leaves are green,starting to change,接近高峰,以及最高峰。It's amazing and for a fall foliage lover like me,梦想成真。

谢天谢地,there were plenty of fall leaves to see on our trip – I was in heaven.我们第一次用大写字母“F”刷落日是在Mt。朝日达克在代塞茨赞国家公园。在山脚下,有一次短暂的徒步旅行,穿过一片小森林,明亮的红色和橙色的金色叶子与深黑的常绿植物形成了完美的对比。From there there was a ropeway that took us halfway up the mountain.我们骑马穿越雨雾,到处都是五颜六色的树,从雾中隐约可见。

在索道的顶部,which was really the midway point to the top of the peak,一切都沐浴在轻柔的雨雾中。四处游荡,we found several little round "mirror" ponds that were mesmerizingly still,即使天空倾泻而下。At times when the path was quiet,it almost felt like we were the only people in the world.It was quiet in the best way possible,雨声是我们徒步旅行唯一的声音。

尽管我很喜欢下雨,我不喜欢淋湿,所以在一天结束的时候,能从雨具里出来,感觉很舒服。我们住在一家日式旅馆。Let me say that again with the amount of enthusiasm I felt when I was actually there:我们住在一家日式旅馆!我一直想呆在一家日式餐厅,or traditional Japanese inn.The one we stayed at was a bit more of a modern,巨人Ryokan,但它还是一个日式的日式料理,有日式的长袍和拖鞋可以换成,整体感觉令人难以置信的节日气氛。The food was intense: course after course of amazing Hokkaido produce prepared perfectly.真是太奢侈了。

我们窗外的景色在第二天阳光照耀下格外绚丽。It was a mountainside covered in trees,不时地点缀着一种变化的颜色,以备秋季之需。它旁边有一条快乐的小河,我觉得自己就像生活在一部梦幻动画里。但如果那是梦幻,I must've pinched myself every hour on the hour after that because everything got a whole lot dreamier becauseglamping.

万一你们不知道,迈克和我有点迷恋野营,尤其是,关于万搏appcamping in Japan.看,they camp differently in Japan.他们全力以赴:一切都是经过深思熟虑的。在北美露营有点粗暴,万搏app在日本露营是为了奢华,而周围的美丽的户外环境。万搏app

我们去的玻璃场地是由Wondertrunk,一家日本旅游公司,重点介绍在日本旅游的新目的地。他们真的知道他们的东西——相信我当我说,你想在北海道炫耀一下。如果说华丽的场地很漂亮,那就低估了它。它就在旁边Kussharo湖,日本最大的火山口湖,连同它自己的神话般友好的湖生物kusshi。We didn't spot Kusshi,但我们在湖边进行了许多清晨的徒步旅行,and the fog and the mist and the random spurts of volcanic sulfuric vents were an incredibly romantic backdrop.我在天堂!

Camping in Japan is all 万搏appabout the camp set ups and the set up at the camp was over the top in the best way possible.The tents – yurts really – had little heaters inside,as well as a sitting area,一张蓬松舒适的大床,铺着最舒适的毯子,一个衣架,还有一个小小的梳妆袋,里面装满了你在营地淋浴/盥洗室所需要的一切。它令人难以置信地深思熟虑,充满了日本的“大酒店”理念:日本独特的酒店理念。

整个营地充满了深思熟虑的气氛。有一个社区帐篷,full of cozy furry rugs,low couches,and loads of heaters for a super welcoming space for all the campers to hang out.早上,有一个“自己烤面包”的情况,我不羞于说我几乎一个人吃了一整条面包——北海道的面包太棒了。There was even a small natural outdoor hot spring onsen only five minutes from camp – perfect for relaxing in after a long day of hikes,especially at night.

我最喜欢在任何地方露营的地方是日出。There's something 万搏appabout sleeping outdoors that makes me wake up early.或者我主要是时差反应。不过我并没有抱怨,因为日本的日出很特别。万搏appThere's a reason why it's called the land of the rising sun,毕竟。But,与日出相抗衡的是夜空。As the sun set and the sky turned purple,then a deep brilliant navy,星星开始闪烁,洒在墨黑的画布上。几分钟后,天空漆黑一片,你几乎可以伸手触摸银河系本身。

Speaking of the stars,北海道有一个地方,你几乎觉得自己在另一个星球上。We took a short nature walk从川渝昂森到爱赞山的湿滑的绿色小路上,also aptly called Sulfur Mountain.Mount Io is an active volcano,但不是那种有熔岩的。Nope,这里有许多发光的硫磺云从地上冒出来,white and dense.You can get up close and personal and even see bubbling water and bright florescent yellow sulfur rocks.它是迷人的(也是最小的一点臭嘻嘻)。

我们花费最多,如果不是我们所有的时间都在北海道外面:沿着河流划水,在森林里徒步旅行,在天空中闪烁。It was incredible. All in all,北海道偷了我的心。我肯定我们很快就回来。

One last thing: Hokkaido is known for the freshest seafood around and one of the best ways to enjoy it is to have a choose it yourself katte-don.这是我们飞往东京之前在kushiro市做的最后一件事。Kushiro is home to a cute little food market called Washo Ichiba.They have all kinds of food there but mostly everyone choses to do the katte-don,这是一个海鲜饭碗。你在一家米店买大米,然后去不同的鱼店买生鱼片。这是我吃过的最好的海鲜甜甜圈之一,四处走走,挑选最美味的生鱼片真是太有趣了。

    我刚在谷歌上查到“神奇卡车日本”,什么也找不到。Do you have any tips/sites that you could suggest for us to somewhat duplicate this trip?看起来很不错。

      Maybe spell it "wondertrunk" as written above.
