- Checked in to Hotel Nikko Chitose 千岁
That's the sky near Tokyo... what a beautiful sunset scene... the different shades of yellow, orange and brown. Have not see such a huge sea of clouds in the sky before! Hm... And the excitement of going through these think clouds... Wow!!! By the time the plane was near the ground, though around 5 pm... it was already dark... but the 'mist' that blankets the stream area gave a mystic look and feel to the urban city.
It's the 2nd time touched down at Narita Airport... the last time was transit to Hawaii... this time, to Hokkaido. We lugged our luggage through the immigration point and bought the domestic flight... and we got the "first class" seat! Row #1!!! hahaha... It was a quiet 1 h 20 min flight to Chitose. My attention was captured by the gentle smile and sweet voice of the air stewards
... One thing to remember when travelling by domestic flights in Japan... always keep the luggage tags... no matter what... it's the 'passport' of the checkin luggages!
"Hokkaido", translated from the "Ainu" language, means a vast piece of swampy land that had dried up. Over 70% of this 2nd largest island in Japan is still covered by forest.
