I am not a fussbudget about movie films but this time I will have to pull out all the stops to select the movie to watch.
I never lie on the job but I would like to introduce a special space hidden in the snow as my first workload of today.
If you miss this sign on the road in Kuriyama Town, Sorachi sub-prefectural area, Hokkaido, you will not encounter the specialty of the core part of Hokkaido.
The name of the Japanese restaurant is AJIDOKORO which takes 1 or two party in a day and requires reservation on the phone by 2 days before the lunch or dinner.
I will take you in the year of 2013, Kathleen, Alan, Kurt, Tanya and Arvo.
Of course, Norm should visit us again and have a dinner with us.
This restaurant absolutely live up to its reputation and my comments.
And after having look at the subtle lighting in the hallway below, cosy party room invites the host and special guests.
Wine sourced locally satisfies the guests as well as Japanese sake.
ARABASHIRI means "not squeeze but just percolate naturally". It cntains the soul of the brewerer.
Thank you very much, Mr Tsubakihara.
Japanese restaurant Ajidokoro is quite an asset of Hokkaido.
Sorry for failing to update for a week!
Korean "kimuchi", spicy pickled Chinese cabbage, is also popular even in Japan.
Mothers in Nanporo Town are exerting their effort to deliver the delicious kimuchi and other local products to all over the world.
They use Chinese cabbage and normal cabbage to make kimuchi.
