Photo Journal: Hokkaido's got heart

A heart-shaped lake surrounded by a sea of trees is seen during a local helicopter tour in Erimo, Hokkaido, in this recent photo. The special tour, which runs until Oct. 22, flies over the beautifully shaped Lake Toyoni and other local spots. The aerial tours idea was initially put forward by people such as Erimo Mayor Masaki Onishi, as it is difficult to appreciate the unique shape of the lake at ground level. The helicopter flights cost 13,000 yen for adults and 10,000 yen for children. (Mainichi)
