I joined the tour to visit east part of Hokkaido, including my birth place "Kushiro".
I was excited to visit my home town and around East Hokkaido area.
Speaking Hokkaido, it tends to focus of the center part such as Sapporo, Otaru, Furano, Biei.
However, if you have a chance to east part there are also many must places to visit.
I hope this my tour spread to all over the countries and many people come to east part of Hokkaido!
