    ランチで窓際の席を予約して、ジンギスカン目的で行きました。 窓からの雪景色・赤煉瓦のビール工場と景色を楽しみながら、特製の生ラムショルダーを堪能しました。 特製タレも絶品で美味しくいただきました。 飼料から管理されたお肉は、いままで食べたラムよりも格別においしかったです。

Since it's so close to Tomakomai port, it's very popular for the Marutoma Bowl made with fresh seasonal fish, and Hokki Curry, made with Hokki clams of which Tomakomai has the largest catch.

Hokkaido Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
