The coastline covered with bamboo grass may be the typical landscape in Hokkaido. The climate and the shape of the coast may be similar with that of Scotland and that is why a new distillery was made in Akkeshi Town.
I am not sure the coastline of Scotland was covered with such bamboo grass or not. The peat moss and the water coming from it made superb whisky in Scotland.
I hope the whisky in due will get the first prize in the competition of the world like "Taketsuru" and "Yoichi" whisky made by Nikka Whisky in Yoichi Town on the west coast of Hokkaido.
