I think that it was prohibited to use the name of Mecca, the sacred city of Islamic people for expressing "the center" of something, so it can be said that Shakotan Peninsula area is one of the most popular area for the people living in Sapporo City and the neighbours to visit, particularly for scuba divers, Yoichi Town, Furubira Town,
The seafood restaurant is at the horn of the peninsula. Route 5 to this area was so crowded on the day. So many people deluged to this area that some restaurants ran out of sea urchin, in particular, the highest grade sea urchin "Ezo Aka Bafun Uni" which means Red Horse-dung-shaped sea urchin of Hokkaido disappeared first.
is a little bit cheaper than "Ezo Aka Bafun Uni".
This restaurnt was nearer than the horn of bthe peninsula and we use it last year . According to the web site of this restaurant, the same kind of sea archin costs 4,500 Yen in this restaurant. So we chose another restaurant this year.
It was beautiful day and I had very nice seafood up to ears. Everybody, enjoying your stay in Hokkaido? I love it!
