The cups for tooth-brushing were made of metal and so was the brush stand. The aroma of cedar or something healing atmosphere filled up our room subtly.
A white river was flowing on the backside of the hotel "Tsuruga Moku-no-Shou". It was so nice to see and listen to the river flow from the window of the room. We felt the breathing of the trees.
I did not have time and vigor to check up the creatures in the river on that day after trekking on Mt. Niseko Annupri. I thought Japanese original crayfish could be seen around there because of the clean water of the river. They eat the withered leaves of trees that fell into the river.
