it was an uneventful day.
we went to an almost deserted sounkyo (save for a few local and foreign tourists), took a chairlift ride and soaked in a foot hotspring. i guess it would be more crowded in winter.
the chairlift must have been the most exciting part of sounkyo, bcos it was 1st time for me and coboypb!

a nice little pavilion where we soaked our tired feet in relaxing spring water from the mountains. it was damn hot the water!
in the evening, we stayed at asahikawa where its shoyu (soy sauce) ramen was famous. it was yummy with lots of spring onion, and equally refreshing as the hakodate counterpart.
