Cycling through the Farmlands

Superb weather today in Niseko – 21 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. Many local residents are saying that there hasn’t been a lot of warm spring weather this year. Some poeple have even gone as far to say they feel like they have gone straight from winter to summer over the last few days. May was unseasonably cold. Farmers are now racing against time to prepare fields and plant crops for the short Hokkaido summer… it’s go time!
