(1)Komukai Hill Observatory

The way to the observatory is a kind of “farm alley”.

Panoramic view of the straight road, pastures, and the sea of Okhotsk is commanded from the observatory. Toilet is not the best but well clean.

(5)Yasoshi District

This land’s name is after “Yasshushinai”, that means “fishing place” by the language of the Ainu (An indigenous people of Hokkaido). This place used to flourish abreast with Konomai district, Mombetsu City, during the height of the gold rush, but now all has gone.
Because I came across the local people as follows and could take pictures by courtesy of them, please forgive me to make it obscure the information below.

When I took the pictures of above abandoned farm, A Mr. T, the local, who was logging talked to me and bought me a can of coffee. I asked him “The logging is for firewood?”, he answered “No, but to avoid the bears make their residences in the woods”…What a “Hokkaidiatic” answer!

During Mr.T’s work, his chain saw was deeply stuck in the wood. What did he cope with the trouble? He took the backhoe there and destroyed the wood itself!

What a tough man…in other words, the old man like him can’t help but continuing to be tough in this less-populated area, where most young generations left behind. He kindly suggested me to take as much the wood as I can as the firewood with offering his own truck for free!
After leaving there, I found a very attractive house. Of course I imagined a craggy big guy in this kind of house…
