The starter of our lunch on that day was so satisfying but you may be confused a little bit by the black stone plate that you should use as a dish. Please do not serve to much.
Another main dish was sauteed king salmon. The peculiar aroma of king salmon spread in our mouth.
When I posted the photos of this restaurant before in summer, it was impossible to take photos as much as I could because many visitors were savoring their lunch there.
Without a reservation, we can not savor the quality foods sourced locally in the restaurant.
I introduced this restaurant near the ski resort in NISEKO before.
The name is LUPICIA that has the branch shop in PASEO area under the Sapporo Railway Station.
Remembering last summer, I think that I did not expected such busy days this year. Without summer nor winter vacation, I am not sure how much I contributed to the benefit of the people living in Hokkaido.
These beautiful photos and memories can refresh me so much.
What do you think of the design of the building on the green ?
The opposite side of the entrance, it has a beautiful landscape with the skylines of Taisetsu Mountains.
This is the fountain at the foot of Mt. Asahi(dake). A variety of minerals were contained in the water.
We found a little beautiful creek at the entrance of the valley. The rocks in the river were covered with water moss so nicely that it was like a artificial garden in the forest.
This is the columnar joints in Tenninkyou Valley. Souunkyou Valley has more and higher columnar joints but this valley has a little bit different taste.
Happy Merry Christmas for you all !
This is the atrium of Sapporo Factory Shopping mall. Every year, such decoration for Christmas can be seen in the atrium albeit the temperature in the atrium is kept around plus 25 degrees in Celsius all the year round.
I used to come here with my wife before our marriage to enjoy spa on the top floor.
Many changes have taken place and we have aged but the we still fight against something without pulling no punches. The blood is still hot. Shall we lock on the next target next year ?
The riverside behind the railway station in Asahikawa City was still constructed for the comfortable lives of the citizens and tourists. The wind flowing on the river was so nice and it inspired me so much.
Columnar joints can be seen around the hot spring bath area. So beautiful water falls called "Hagoromo-no-taki" and "Shikishima-no-taki" are on the upper-side of the river but too much water flow of the river kept us from reaching and seeing those waterfalls on that day.
