Beautiful View from Mt. Hakodate

A week ago, I went up to Mt. Hakodate with a group from Singapore. It was raining in the morning and afternoon and I was worried if we could enjoy the view at night from Mt. Hakodate. But it was needless fear. When we go up to the observatory, we can see a double rainbow rising up the sky.

Leaving from the door, what I saw was a very large arch.

We arrived at the observatory around five in the evening and waited for the changing shades. It was really unusual day and it was the first time to see the pink shade of the view.

The color came from the beautiful sunset. Two staff of the observatory standing behind me exclaimed in wonderment that they saw such sunset for the first time. The guests I guided on the day and I were really lucky to share such amazing sights.

Manhole cover in Esashi

Esashi town is famous for its folk song Esashi Oiwake. The town once thrived on herring fishing and you can know about its time visiting herring mansions there. Ubagami Shinto Shrine's annual festival is also very famous.

The manhole cover above has a design consisting of Heishi Rock(瓶子岩), a Battle ship Kaiyo-maru and a sea gull. All can be seen near Kamome(sea gull) island.

Manhole cover in Kaminokuni Town

Kaminokuni is located next to Esashi town and it has relics of medieval times. When I went to the edge of Esashi, I found this monhole cover. The flowers on it must be Ezoyama-tsutsuji, Hokkaido azalea, because it is a symbol flower of the town.

Manhole covers in Hokuto-city

Now I live in Hokuto-city but I hadn't taken any pictures of its manhole covers until recently.
This one below is an old cover with its former town name, Kamiiso. The design consists of a salmon and a lighthouse.

The next cover says Kamiiso Yakko, which seems a scene of its festival.

Present manhole cover is as follows, with a design containing a Shinkansen bullet train and Trappist monastery.
