  • I planned a car trip from Tokyo to Hokkaido on the occasion of my relatives visiting Japan, and stayed at The shore of Lake Towada for the first night and walked around the Oirase Stream the next morning. Because it was a weekday, there was no traffic jam, and there were few people walking along the mountain stream, so I was able to enjoy the quiet Autumn Oirase. The trees were also turned red and my relatives were very satisfied.
