Next we went to Rokkatei (六花亭) for some dessertdsc_0057dsc_0058dsc_0059dsc_0060It was raining cats and dogs so we chilled for quite some time there before heading to the grape juice factory, where it shows how grapes are grown, differentiated and harvested to make wine.dsc_0070dsc_0072dsc_0074dsc_0076dsc_0078

Before leaving the farm area we randomly went into a shop selling melons!dsc_0080img_1276

wow the melon is heavenly! Just looking at it is mouth-watering, we each took a slice and bite into it, juices runs down and we tasted refreshing sweetness. Soon we finished half of it and we packed the rest to go. We couldn’t resist the taste of it so we bought another melon. =)

We stopped by at Shimukappu Village (占冠村) for quick lunch and set off for Noboribetsu. It was cloudy the whole day with frequent small shower.dsc_0093

Coming here, we had to visit the hot spring for a foot bath. The water had a temperature just right to allow your feet to relax with the help of stones and pebbles for blood circulation. After the foot bath, surprisingly my feet felt refresh and light. =)img_1392
