Konnichiwa! It’s autumn season in Sapporo. That’s means foliage watching is a must not miss activity. I begin my journey from Sapporo station to Makomanai Subway station and it take 15 minutes walking to the park from the station.

As I approach, the parking lot of the palce also looks beautiful. Entrance cost 300 Yen per person which is reasonable price for the size of park.

After some strolling, I approached to the restaurant inside the park. It seems to be crowded with people in 11 AM. I noticed that Genkhis Khan is quite popular in the resturant too. However, I decided to go with Niji Masu set (rainbow trout).

Even the texture are similar to salmon, the texture of rainbow trout are much chewy compared to salmon (in a good way).

Fried shrimp and rainbow trout are divine. Combination of crispiness and sweetness is just insanely good.

I started my trip from Sapporo subway station to Oyachi station. Then took Chuo bus No.69 and stopped at 平岡4条2丁目 bus stop. Driving is also possible however, the parking space is quite limited and crowded in Autumn. Park closes on Monday and opens until 5th November 2017.

Konnichiwa! It’s autumn season in Hokkaido. That’s means foliage watching is a must not miss activity. This time I went to Jonzakei which is located about 1 hours driving from Sapporo. Jozankei is a famous town for Onsen in Hokkaido.

I arrived at the restaurant about 10:50 AM. Ten minutes after that, the place just filled with parked cars and people starts lining around. Seems like a rush for a lunch.

I went with a Tempura and Soba set (1,150 Yen).

Shrimp tempura is one of the best. The texture of shrimp is firm and sweet. Soba texture is also consistent.
