On August 8, 2012 the bus picked us up at the hotel and we were taken to see a number of sights prior to being transported to the train station. At the Goto Lakes site we went for a walk on a well constructed wooden walkway over a marshy area. The breezes pushed the fog in and out as we progressed on the walkway. We saw Ezo "Shika" or deer bedded down or eating water lily leaves as published previously. The scenery is quite beautiful and we were thankful for the boardwalk.
