“Sunset at Maeda Forest Park” in Teine-ku, Sapporo.

My favorite place in Maeda Forest Park is a path lined with poplars which runs alongside a 600 meter canal. Of course it’s beautiful on a clear day, but I think the best view is on days when it’s slightly cloudy and the sky is awash with colors. On days like that, with the sky and poplars reflected in the canal, I like to sit back and marvel at the beauty of Hokkaido's natural landscapes.
