The Hokkaido Countryside

If you say to yourself as you look at these photos, "That doesn't look like Japan", you echo my own observations. As the shots of scenic as well as urban Hokkaido show, the prefecture is like no other in Japan. Hokkaido's uniqueness is one of the reasons I so like it. But Hokkaido, like the rest of the country, has its active volcanoes- one of them (with volcanic gas issuing from its flank), Showa Shin-zan, appears in the bottommost picture.
