It may be inspiring to have binge drinking with youngsters albeit I have to pick up the tab without going Dutch.
I throw a BBQ party in BBQ restaurant "Ton Ton Tei" in Iwamizawa on January 22(Wed.). I regret that I should have more occasions to talk with youngsters in my division about our business and life.
This course costs 2,500 Japanese yen without drinks. We brought in drinks we liked.
The restaurant is run by a social welfare facility.
The URL of the restaurant is
Please try the pheasant dishes in Iwamizawa this weekend !

I am not sure if I could call the restaurant "auberge" or not but anyway two villas are on the vast premises of Fratello di Mikuni in Kamikawa Town.
Please try that but it requires patience to obtain the reservation to have a happy time there.

A curious championship battles were fought on the stage of snow festival held in Shintotsukawa Town on January 28. Each fighter has to sit on the Chinese pans which diameter is seventy centimeters.
It seemed so difficult to hit the balance on the round Chinese pan.
Please enjoy the snow and the season of white !
Have I post these photos ?
It seemed that Iwamizawa City is loved so much by Goddess of Snow. Only forty kilometer distance makes the difference between the city and Sapporo.
All the trees were burdened with the sticky heavy snow and bearing with their yielding branch but the limit exists.
Let's get the exciting week started !
Ms. Ibaraki Prefecture and Ms. Tochigi Prefcture visited the event stage of the underground promenade of Sapporo City which is called "Chika-ho" and delivered Japanese apricot trees that are budding in their prefecture.
It will take three month to see the cherry blossoms in Hokkaido.
Before that, please enjoy the activities and the scenery in winter in Hokkaido !
Above is the flagship menu spicy fried chicken wings of "Sekai-no Yama-chan", Japanese Izakaya group headquartered in Nagoya City. The group has the branch even in Hokkaido and we visited the one in Sapporo City.
It seems that the black pepper works so much that my hubby did chug-a-lug of beer faster than usual.
As you may know, Nagoya Kochin is very popular as the high-end chicken for meat in Japan. Yama-chan opens all the year round. The digital menu common in Japan is at http://www.yamachan.co.jp/menu/index.php

Please enjoy the taste of Nagoya City inSapporo City !
The photo above may be too bright but the quality was so high and amply satisfied me who was eager to eat again "Makanai-don" which means the board for the kitchen staff and contains chopped seafood that had been so popular in the diner "Hirano-ya" near the Sapporo Central Market. Compared to normal sushi, it does not require to shape the sushi but the sense of taste should be keen to make it.
Usually, I used this Japanese restaurant in the evening and savor the grilled food and fresh sea food with plenty of beer. The name of the restaurant "Aburi" means to grill. Please try that. The quality of the materials and the skill of the chef are guaranteed. Have a nice weekend !
I've never seen the illumination of LED light bulbs in Hokkaido University before but this year, a tree is decorated with light bulbs on the premises of the university. It is near the north gate facing kita 18-jo street.
