I think it was the Sorachi river that goes all the way from Furano to the west coast of Hokkaido... When we caught the bus back from Furano to Sapporo, we must have criss-crossed it a dozen times. About 10mins out of Kita-Furano there were people ice fishing near a camping area, very picturesque in winter, I can only imagine how beautiful it looks in the summer and autumn.
