I went to the Chitose airport in Hokkaido by help and send-off on that day, since the friend of the foreigner who is present in Japan went back. It was a long time that I take an airplane. After having seen off a friend at an international airline counter, Ｉ decided to decide travelling in the Chitose suburbs since I thought that returning to Tokyo immediately is was insipid. The direction which I went toward is Yūbari. I changed by Minami Chitose from the Chitose airport station, I waited at the station for about 1 hour, rode on the limited express for Obihiro, and got down in Shin-Yuubari for the connections to other railway routes. It is common unlike the train of the metropolitan area, to wait for the transfer station for 1-2 hours in Hokkaido, since the district route has very few trains excluding the main route for Sapporo from the Chitose airport. When seen from the train window, the trees of a place between mountains and a plain were dyed deep/beautiful autumnal tints. Because latitude of Hokkaido is high compared with Honshu, the time of autumnal leaves is early. I came out of the Shin-Yūbari station once and took a walk around, since I must wait for 1 hour and a half to change to the train for Yūbari from Shin-Yūbari. This photograph is taken from the bridge built over the Yūbari river in the place along which I walked about 10 minutes from the station.

I can smell it Mikio, this is fresh from the oven It is always nice to sit back and watch the show of bursting colours like this and true sensation of being there. Indeed a spectacular display of the season you've done a marvellous job of recording from such an excellent wide view and depth. Green & yellow are great additional colours to boost the contrast, the clarity all seems to be well exposed even on the brightest light there. This photo really gives so much to the viewer to enjoy and is fitting the occassion to such a delight. Congrats

This is a beautiful view with a good balance between the green and yellow trees in the lower part and the mainly violet and red trees on the hillside. The note also gives an interesting account of your complicated train journeys through the area.

Here you present us a very nice collection of splendid autumn tones.
The different colours of the trees create a feeling of depth on that hill.
Best regards, Paul

You have captured excellent countryside photo with outstanding details, photo with very nice fall colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done my friend.

The straight line of the road and bridge separates the picture into two very different parts, colour-wise. The autumnal colours are clearly more developed in the upper part whereas the lower trees still keep most of their green leaves. Interesting and beautiful!

Wonderful autumn colors, Mikio, well collected inspite a mild-light conditions.
The RR bridge actually a bit disturbing the nature scene, but that's part of life. Water flow on the near river added a fine dynamism to the beautiful photo.

The autumnal colors mixed with the evergreens present a delightful palette. The Yūbari River frames the forest very nicely at the bottom. I think the scenery was well worth the trip.
