Buckwheat Noodle with Curry Soup in Yubari City
On January 3(Tue.), nobody is on the rice field covered with snow. But the trace of crosscountry skiiing can be found on the surface of the white field. On our way from Iwamizawa City to Yubari City, sometimes deers were eating agriculturl produce such as buds of wheat and other crops.
Absolutely deers got under farmer's skin. Every municipality want to reduce the number of deers in their area but the number of registered hunters is not enough and going down. Now that well-trained hunters are very few, municipalities in Hokkaido can not control the number of deers and make the most of the meat.
Yubari City that flourished before as part of the coalmine area in Hokkaido has its shrine on the side of mountain. Yubari City bankrupted five years ago
and is struggling to recover under the young new mayor Mr.Suzuki.
Narrow space inside the building may be easy to warm up with portable stove. The theme is Japanese community festival "Matsuri".
Have you ever tried that ?
Sweet melons produced in Yubari City are very famous and make the top brand in Japan. Besides, international movie film festival is held every year in Yubari City. This year it will be held on February 23(Thu.)-27(Mon.). It will be still very cold in Yubai City.
The young leader and his staff are exerting their incredible effort to revitalize the city and adjacent area that flourished with coalmine before.
Please visit and try the museum of coalmine in Yubari.
Thank you in advance;)
