(Sapporo-80/Asahikawa)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food and wine tour

本日も晴天、ホテルから旭川駅南口へ朝散歩。忠別川大自然に隣接して広がる「あさひかわ北彩都ガーデン」。知る人ぞ知るまちなかのオアシス。

On another sunny day, took a morning walk from the hotel to the south exit of Asahikawa Station.  "Asahikawa Kitasaito Garden" is located next to the natural beauty of the Chubetsu River.  It's an oasis in the city.

前回来たのは3月、ちょうど半年前だが、雪の中だった。

The last time came here was in March, exactly six months ago, and was in the snow.

北国の陽射しには、透明感がある!

There's a clarity to the northern sunlight.

北彩都ガーデン内には池を望む広場にコーヒーショップ。リモートの仕事が捗りそうだ。

In Kitasaito Garden, there is a coffee shop in a plaza overlooking a pond.  Looks like a great place to work remotely.

緑豊かで素晴らしい空間を楽しむ。忠別川の方に近づくと「熊出没注意」の掲示板。駅のそばだが北海道らしい警告。

Enjoyed the green and wonderful space.  As approached to Chubetsu River, saw a sign that said "Caution Bear Encounters".  A typical warning in Hokkaido, even near the station.

自然豊かな南口とは異なり、旭川駅の北口には熊注意はない。大商業施設、買物公園、オフィス街が広がる30万都市。旭川に来られたらこのコントラストを体感すべき。

Unlike the nature-rich south exit, there is no bear warning at the north exit of Asahikawa Station.  This is a city of 300,000 in population with large commercial facilities, shopping parks, and office districts.  If come to Asahikawa, should experience this contrast.

ホテルから向かったのは嵐山展望台。旭川中心部から5キロほど離れた山岳丘陵地で標高は253メートル。山頂から見下ろす石狩川大雪山の風景が、京都嵐山の頂上から見下ろす鴨川や比叡山の風景に似ているから、という説が正しいようだ。その眺望は「旭川八景」にも選定されているビュースポット。車で行くと道が狭い。

旭川市街とその向こうに大雪山系や十勝連峰を望む。

From the hotel, headed to the Arashiyama Observatory.  It is a hilly area about 5 kilometers from the center of Asahikawa, and the elevation is 253 meters.  It is said that the view of the Ishikari River and Mt. Daisetsu from the top of the mountain is similar to the view of Kamo River and Mt. Hiei from the top of Arashiyama in Kyoto.  The view was selected as one of the "Eight Views of Asahikawa".  The road is narrow for drive there.
The view of Asahikawa city and Mt. Daisetsu and Tokachi mountain ranges beyond.

次に行ったのが「就実の丘」。360度の雄大なパノラマを楽しめる穴場スポットという。旭川市の南東部・西神楽地区。大雪山連峰や十勝岳連峰の遠景を望める、北海道的な眺めが魅力。ロケ地に使われたことも。

Then visited "Shujitsu no Oka", a great spot to enjoy the magnificent 360-degree panorama.  Nishikagura district in the southeast part of Asahikawa city.  Could see the Daisetsu mountain range and the Tokachi mountain range in the distance.  It was once used as a filming location.

旭川市街地も。

And view of the city in the distance.

旭川を南下してすぐの美瑛は美しい丘の町。元マイルドセブンの丘。今はカラマツが伐採されている。

Biei, just south of Asahikawa, is a town of beautiful hills.  Former Mild Seven Hill.  Now the larches had been cut down.

旭川に戻り酒守蔵を再訪。店主もスタッフも女性らしく明るく清潔な店内。店内は店主が酒蔵から直接仕入れた酒が沢山。

Went back to Asahikawa and revisited the Shumozo.  The owner and staff seem women, and the store was bright and clean.  Inside the store, they have a lot of sake that the owner purchased directly from the breweries.

「三千櫻酒造」の発泡酒「夏のにごり」を。旭川から大雪山に向かう途中の東川町にある酒蔵。昨年に岐阜の同名の酒蔵が移転し東川町の公設酒蔵として再スタートしたらしい。

爽やかな発泡酒で、あっという間に飲み干してしまった。お店のアドバイスに感謝。

Had "Natsu no Nigori" a sparkling sake from "Michizakura Shuzo".  The brewery is located in the town of Higashikawa on the way to Mt. Daisetsu from Asahikawa.  The brewery of the same name in Gifu was relocated and restarted as a public brewery in Higashikawa last year.
It was a refreshing, sparkling sake that finished in short time.  Thanks to the shop's advice.
