    I only managed to visit a curry don place because Xiao Wei can’t take spicy food. Nevertheless, I am still thankful that I managed to visit Yuiga Doxon. It’s one of the famous curry don place in Furano, Hokkaido, Japan.

    I highly recommend you guys to visit there if you are visiting Hokkaido!

    Address: 11-8 Hinodemachi Furano 076-0025, Hokkaido
    Phone Number: +81 167-23-4784

    On a random note, since it was a road trip for us in the trip and weXiao Wei have to drive through several mountainous areas where we lost GPS signal and also see random road signs to warn us of seeing wild deers, bears, etc. It was pretty exciting now that I think about it. Hmm…

    We went to Asahikawa Zoo one of the days and whoa, it’s probably one of our favourite places. :smile: I took many nice photos and I get to see my favourite penguin! Hehe. Shall let the photos do the talking this time round (cause I’m getting lazier to blog in detailed…)

    We went to Ginga-no-taki/Ryusei-no-taki twin waterfalls and also passed by Sounkyo Ropeway. Both attractions are in Daisetsuzan National Park which is Hokkaido’s largest national park. I didn’t take much photos with my camera cause it was drizzling at that time and my camera battery cover is spoilt so I don’t dare to keep using it lest water gets into the body.

    I took photos and videos with my Gopro Hero 5 when I was there and I didn’t upload much from my Gopro to Foto Amore or The Treble Story.

    We went to Furano Marche for snacks and whoa, it is indeed a tourist location. The food are more expensive and I see tour buses as well. Then again, it is a place that is very difficult to access if you don’t take a tour bus or drive there. Glad that we were on a road trip and is able to drive there.

    Just look at the food photos. Yummy! I want to go back there now~

    Xiao Wei mentioned that Furano Winery and Chataeu Furano has really great scenery and whoa, she is totally right!

    It’s also my first time visiting a winery. I was thinking of visiting Napa Valley before but didn’t spend that money because (1) I’m really poor at that time, (2) I don’t drink so what’s the point of visiting a winery?

    Well, I didn’t thought that I will visit a winery in Hokkaido but decided to stick to it since it is pretty near Furano Cheese Factory and Furano Pizza Factory which were on our itinerary.

    We also get to try some wine and grape juice as well. Xiao Wei and I really liked the grape juice and since she was our driver, she couldn’t try out the wine. Well, if you drink, don’t drive. If you drive, don’t drink. I don’t drink but tasted a tiny bit of rose wine but I didn’t like it.

    Chateau Furano is just above the Furano Winery. It’s actually an atas restaurant (i.e. really expensive). I don’t recommend climbing up. I mean walking up the slope. Driving up is fine, I suppose. Glad that Xiao Wei decided to be our driver for the trip. :smile: 

    We wanted to have our lunch there originally but whoa, the food are really expensive. No wonder it is a fine dining place. It’s expensive because of its view and ambience.

    Japan is a lot more advanced than Singapore when it comes to technology. I don’t think I ever seen an electric car charger in Singapore before…

    See what I mean by really nice scenery? If you guys are driving in Hokkaido, it’s definitely a place worth visiting!
