wed 9 aug

we had onigiri (triangular rice balls) for breakfast everyday, and this toyoko inn served the most variety. however by the end of week 1, we were quite sick of onigiri :(

we made our way early in the morning to furano, the land of lavender.

at the furano station, we could see blooming lavender, and smell it too!

we checked into the sumire ryokan, and the owner was nice enough to let us have our room keys at 9am!

we were greeted by kuro

and chobi

now to the lavender fields!

What's inside the onigiri?

The cat and rug match. I love handknotted rugs.

Weren't there other breakfast options though? Poor things.
