Hokkaido from a bus window

From the bus  001

I don’t usually go on tours, but found myself in one on my first trip to Hokkaido. Hokkaido’s a big island. Maybe going on tour first gives one an idea of where to go spend time on the next trip. ^^. At least now I know if I’m not planning to spend time in Sapporo alone, I’ll need a car to get around. I think I’ll try Hakodate on my own next time around. But for now, enjoy these pics that you can only see from a bus window.

Pictures taken behind glass on a moving object (bus). What’s the charm in this genre?

Is it the glare and reflection in the glass that was captured in the shot? Or is it the blurriness that shows motion?

At least in these pics, it must have been the height of the bus. ^^.

Going on tour is quite tiring, given the hours spent traveling on the bus. Luckily for me (and us), Japanese coaches are quite comfy. Besides, Hokkaido is a tourism spot. Lots of comfy buses around.

Still… next time I’m there, I’ll hope to be in the driver’s seat. Will miss the height and snapping drive-by photos though…

    Tours are nice for just lazing around, doing nothing.
