I woke early to go for Onsen (hot spring).
It’s quiet; air is crispy but Onsen keeps me warm.
I love this moment in open air onsen.
I took a quick breakfast.
I picked all bad combination: carbohydrates…but these are nice…
I want to try Wakasagi Tsuri (pond smelt fishing) on the frozen pond.
Today, Wakasagi Tsuri is available only at Kairaku Koen (Kairaku Park), Tsukigata Town, Hokkaido.
We set the car navigation to Tsukigata Onsen.
It’s about one hour from Sapporo and two hours from Jozankei Onsen.
Yes, there are many beautiful sceneries.
Arrived at Kairaku Koen.
We got ready at Mizube no Ie (Water Front House).
Wore a rubber boots then walk on the lake.
There are tents on the lake.
There is a stove in the tent; therefore, it’s very warm inside.
Place a bait (warm) on hooks.
Then start fishing.
Obviously, I’m not good at fishing.
I caught a total of three Wakasagi only.
The weather is nice so we tried to fish at outside.
We drilled our own hole.
I tried for a while, but I caught none. Boo Hoo.
The shop cooked Wakasagi Tempura for us.
There are only eight (8) and enjoyed each bites because they are very very very fresh.
After fishing, enjoyed Tsukigata Onsen.
I really enjoyed my short stay in Hokkaido.
I’ll plan to come back again.
