    A Western-style restaurant opened in 1946 in Toyako Hot Spring Resort in Toyako Town, Abuta County, Hokkaido. Inside the restaurant are traces of the days when it was opened with some of the old furniture like tables and chairs remaining, making it feel like your stepping back in time. They have plenty of dishes on the menu still loved from days gone by such as pork chops with their specially made sauce, spaghetti naporitan (spaghetti with a tomato based sauce), and soft, juicy Hamburg steaks. If any member of your group prefers Japanese-style food the restaurant will prepare accordingly if you call ahead.

    Hokkaido Kawakamigunteshikagachou Kawayuekimae 1-1-18 Kawayu Onsen Inside the station building
    A café and restaurant built inside the now unmanned train station of Kawayu Onsen in 1936. What was once offices and the station master's office is now a relaxing, retro restaurant. The station master's office with its beautiful stained glass was once where Emperor Showa had a break. The slowly stewed, mouth watering beef stew is particularly well known, drawing guests far and wide to try it.

    A small station cafe, we had a long wait for the train at Kawayuonsen station and decided to try it. The service was very good, the menu is small but the food was tasty. Worth a visit.

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.
