This year the Golden Week Holidays in Japan fell perfectly, in a way that gave my husband and others an unusually long holiday. So we packed our bags and went for a driven.
Normally, we go west, in the direction of Kyoto, like the rest of Japan, but this year we decided to go north, to Hokkaido.
The roads were so open and free, it was difficult to believe it was Golden Week. We zipped up and made our first stop at this city. Can you guess by the pictures where these were taken?
