Visited the country club of Sapporo, named after William Smith Clark (1826-86), in Kitahiroshima, near Sapporo. Dr. Clark, who was born in Massachusetts and was a professor at Amherst College, stayed in Sapporo for only eight months from 1876 to 1877 as the president of Sapporo Agricultural School (presently Hokkaido University), but left a great mark and memory in Hokkaido.
Dr. Clark's reputation seems to be slightly different in Japan and the U.S., perhaps due to the difference in the length of his stay.
There are three courses, East, Middle and West, which are magnificent hilly and wooded courses typical of Hokkaido. With light green woods and wide fairways, can hit tee shots in a relaxed manner and enjoy a relaxing game of golf. It is somewhat like golf courses in New England.
The greens are wide, deformed and difficult, but enjoyed playing. Glad that can finish 18 holes without break in Hokkaido. By the time finished, it was dusk.
On the way home, took out at the long-established Western-style restaurant "Towairaito" in Kiyota-ku, Sapporo. This is the good restaurant that often took out while living in Sapporo.
First, to accompany the wine, prepared the terrine purchased earlier with a salad from Towairaito.
Hamburg steak and salad at Towairaito.
One of the things secretly love about Towairaito is the dressing that comes with the salad. Can choose from tartar or vegetable. Chose the tartar this time. Enjoyed vegetables with this!
The next day, went to "Ramen Sora", which is close to Susukino Tanuki-koji. The popular restaurant that also has a branch at New Chitose Airport.
Spicy miso ramen. Really spicy.
Miso ramen. "Sumire style", with ginger. Really delicious. Thanks for the meal.
