A Large Zoo, a Literature Museum, and the Blue Pond

Though there was a whole post last week thanks to an unexpected discovery of Wi-fi, this week I couldn’t find much opportunities to write. Because we are in the final week of the vacation, all the things we want to do are packed in to the week, thus making the time is hard.

I only have a little time to write, so I can only fit in a trip update. Still, these last few days were spectacular, so I hope you will enjoy it!

Recently, we arrived at our final location in Hokkaido, called Asahikawa. The first day we got there, we visited the famous zoo there, called the Asahiyama Zoo.

The zoo is famous for the large and unique places they keep the animals, which makes them feel at their natural habitat. Visitors can also see things they can’t usually see. For example, there is a very large cage near the main entrance for various birds to allow them to fly freely. Where the seals are, you can see them swim fast and gracefully above your head through glass.

The next day we visited a literature museum about to a famous Japanese Christian author. Her books actually influenced my mother and helped her to become a Christian! The place had different panels and papers that explored her life, the things written in her books, and other things.

We also visited two famous flower gardens. The meters and meters of colorful flowers was dazzling.

And then we went to … THE BLUE POND! It was even more beautiful than I thought it would be. I don’t regret at all calling it “magical in the” last post. If you ever go to Hokkaido, then you should definitely go here.


That’s it for this week! I am sorry for the short post, but I am hoping I can write more for you next time (when I will be in Kyoto)!

God bless! 🙂
