Material of the dish was fresh and it was very delicious. After the lunch, I was looking around the town with a camera and the map.

After the Wakkanai Park, I took a room at the hotel “Meguma” which is located on Cape Koema.

Development is so delayed this area, it still retains something of the old days.

(My wife was diagnosed with Melanoma on January this year. She underwent surgery 3 times, and lost the big toe of right foot. For that reason I didn’t travel anywhere this year. But I set off on a short trip to the northernmost town of Japan and visited two islands nearby last week.)
