( one year ago, today )

“Golden Week” is about to start here in Japan, a bunch of national holidays in short order that, along with a weekend or two, gives people willing to use them a long vacation. I work for myself so it doesn't matter to me on that level, but now that Anthony's in school, we have to match our travel to the national schedule. (For a laugh, see this humorous but sadly accurate description of Golden Week.)

We had been planning to bring Anthony to Tokyo Disneyland today, but that plan got scrapped with recent events, so instead I'm showing some pictures from the first full day of last year's Golden-Week trip. All the pictures on this post were taken one year ago today.

The trip was the source of a lot of nice imagery, including Pretty Fields in Biei, Abandoned Houses in Hokkaido, More Biei Countryside, Furano Wine House Park, and Yet More from Picturesque Biei, among others. All the related posts are listed in my Furano/Biei Post Category.

We saw a bit of snow on that last day of April, but the next day we found tons of snow.
