US-Japan Relationship !

by Kazu

As you may know, the relationship between Japan and the United States of America keeps stable, solid and profitable environment in the eastern part of Asia.
 Every event arranged and held by the Consulate General of the US in Sapporo and the Japan-US Society in Hokkaido seems to show the significant meaning to the world.
On that day, Vice Govenor of Hokkaido Yasuhiro TSUJI delivered a speech at the beginning of the reception. I hope that all the people know the history of the US and Japan in detail and recognize again the necessity of our solid relationship.


The US Independence Day !

by Kazu

A variety of areas in the society of Hokkaido including Sapporo City have the people deeply involved in Hokkaido Japan-US Society.
The reception of the US Independence Day is the good occasion to recognize again the importance of the friendship between the USA and Japan including Hokkaido.
Every time the reception is held, well-organized attraction is arranged at the beginning of the reception.


Events of the American Consulate General in Sapporo !

by Kazu

The reception of the US Independence Day is arranged so nicely every year. Top brasses of each area are invited. This time, Sapporo Park Hotel was the venue of the national day.
The main performance was the play of a flute and a fiddle. All the guests seemed to be relaxing and enjoying.
I was convinced of the power of music again. Human beings need music. After the prelude, the ceremony started surrounded by green plants.


End of the lunch !

by Kazu

The lunch course of that day was wrapped up with the famous roll cake of Obihiro-based patisserie "Rokkatei".
 This is the entrance of the restaurant. It's a pity that the restaurant was closed. So limited people savored the quality dishes of the restaurant, I think.
The bridge to the entrance of the restaurant from the road was also surrounded by spruce, larch and birch as well as other wild plants with some kind of fruits.


Hidden Reserve Restaurant "Rokka Sansou" 4 !

 by Kazu

Fried asparagus and crab cream croquette might be said "the main dish" of the lunch.
  Kidney beans, sliced burdock and chicken meat ball boiled with dried kelp and dried fermented bonito followed.
Boiled asparagus refreshed the inside of our mouth with its textile and slight sweetness. The dessert was butter cream cookie sandwich that contained raisin.


Hidden Reserve Restaurant "Rokka Sansou" 3 !

 by Kazu

The lunch of the hidden restaurant in the woods of Furano City started with a cup of miso soup with sliced little bamboo shoot which is called "wakatake-jiru".
 The steamed rice featuring green peas and chestnuts made me remember my grand mother who  raised me up. 
 Boiled spinach seemed to be flavored with broth, soy sauce and sesame. Sliced burdock flavored with soy sauce and chili accelerated my rice in-take.
