Hot Plate French "OPa" and Gallery NH in Bibai

A private guest house turned to the gallery and wonderful French restaurant on the outskirts of Bibai City.
The name is OPa and Gallery NH.
On the Route 12 from Sapporo to Asahikawa, this sign can be seen on your left in Chashinai area after passing the downtown of Bibai City.
I have been interested in what the sign showed.
This time my friend living in Bibai City introduced me the restaurant and gallery.
 A farm restaurant ?
It looked so compact that I was wondering how many guests the facility could accommodate.
But speaking of the design and location, to be brief, Me gusta!
It has veggie fields that produces the material to make the culinary delights, and beautiful garden around the building. 
It was so hot on that day that we chose the inside but in autumn this space can be used as a waiting bar albeit the reservation is required to have lunch or dinner in this restaurant.   
The design of the building is very simple. It may be hard to take off the heavy snow that annoys Sorachi area . It opened last June so the chef has not experienced heavy snow and hectic work to take off the heavy snow. 
 As the sign shows the red rose on it, very beautiful roses are raised in front of the entrance.
Special wine and Japanese sake are set on the table and waiting for the dance with meat!
A swing, a table and chairs are at the backyard  of the restaurant as well as corn fields.
Small wedding party can be arranged  on the decks in the premise. It looks so comfortable!
 Before showing what I was moved, shall we have a look on Gallery NH.
A huge sculpture of owl was on the timber of the gallery.
Mr.Yukinori ENDO, the chef of this restaurant is the protege of Mr.Meisuke Hanayagi, the famous Japanese traditional dancer. So many photos of Mr.Hanayagi are on the wall.
Beautiful cut glasses are on the table and cabinet in the gallery.
The guests can have a rest after enjoying the chef's special in the restaurant. 
 I am not good at memorize the name of the people but these beautiful photos and portraits were so interesting even for me.
On top of that, I was so intrigued with this candle stand with clock. It can make great atmosphere in the night. 
I am not used to this kind of cultural activities but the photos and their objects were so beautiful and like an illusion. 
it seems that Mr.Endo, the chef is teaching Japanese traditional dance with his elegance and grace in Bibai City  
I am not sure why he left his hometown Yonezawa City and came to Bibai City but anyway we really appreciate his coming to Hokkaido. He has many friends in his hometown and his connection brings us the supreme beef produced in Yonezawa City at a reasonable price.  
 Mr.Endo handles all the process to receive the guests including cooking chores, so reservation should be required and he can receive seven to eight guest at most in each dinner or lunch. 
The gallery is so calm separated from the dining area and the garden looked so nice from the window that I did not notice the appetizer was served for me in the restaurant.  

 I think this sculpture is from China but I do not have enough sense to appreciate such kind of arts, or common sense, for that matter. 
Then I will post what I was moved, tomorrow!
Mr.Endo does all by himself except for gardening and raising the veggies.
The kitchen looked so great and functional!
