When I went to Esan last weekend, I found a sign board saying that Mui-no-shima Observatory. It was intriguing and we visited there. Entering the parking lot, we saw a northern fox! He ran away soon. Then, entering the path to the observatory, I found plenty of feces I've never seen. I think they were horses'. I've heard that there are wild horses in Toi area. From the parking lot to the observatory, it took about five minutes or so. I was scared of encountering wild horses on the way. I was lucky enough not to encounter any horses. This is a picture that I took from there. This is Mui islet and on the horizon you can see Aomori prefecture.
Akiko lives in a city next to Hakodate and loves to drive around Hakodate and surrounding area. I hope people who visit or live in the Southwest area of Hokkaido come to love the area, too. 函館の隣町在住で道南エリアのドライブ大好きAkikoです。道南を訪れたり、住んでいる人が土地を好きになってくれたらなぁ、と思います。
