Welcome Screen Pins: Kamishihoro

You know how when you boot up your pc there’ll be an image with little prompts before you log in? Well, yesterday when I was logging in at work I had a thought of: why not click the prompts and learn something new each day? (Aside from just thumbing up or down for similar images.)

Then I figured I could do a little deep dive, jot down some facts and things I’d like to do there, so I can start keeping a list of travel ideas/a bucket list.

Now it won’t be everyday of course, just the places that catch my eye (which will probably be most of them). Anyway, first up is the town of Kamishihoro, Japan!

Region: Hokkaido

Prefecture: Hokkaido

A shy fairy of the sky and earth who pilots hot air balloons and loves to eat agricultural/livestock products of the town.
