The evening on the last day of the short stay in Sapporo. After returning home from a day out, had a glass of Sapporo Classic and Zangi from "Otaru Narutoya" while the sun was still bright. If possible, would like to have a pile of shredded cabbage.
Next was a white Gentil from Hugel, one of the oldest and most famous wineries in Alsace. Genti was a wine that revived the old Alsatian tradition of using at least 50% of the four designated fine varieties of Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris and Muscat.
The Hugel website said, "The spicy flavors of Gewurz, the body of Pinot Gris, the finesse of Riesling, the fruitiness of Muscat, and the freshness of Sylvaner were in harmony". This was a wine to keep in the fridge as it was pure in taste with no oak or sugar supplementation, and had a gentle acidity that made it easy to drink with an aperitif.
Having hamburgers for dinner...
And lots of sautéed vegetables.
The next day, left Sapporo to return to Tokyo. Unfortunately, it was raining at New Chitose Airport, but there was light shining through the clouds as the sky was dramatic in the north.
Landed at night. Went to "Shinjuku Acacia" at Haneda Airport. It was been 11 months since stopped by there when frew to Okinawa at the end of last year.
Acacia was established in Shinjuku in 1963. It was a famous cabbage roll set meal restaurant at a time when Shinjuku was the cultural hub. It was probably a time when students ate cabbage rolls, listened to Beatles or Rolling Stones, and participated in student movements. It was a time when Japan and the rest of world were connected by anti-war sentiments.
A set menu of cabbage rolls and one other dish.
Cabbage Roll Set Meal.
The cabbage roll and croquette set meal was the same as the one at the end of last year. Thank you for the meal.
Perhaps because of the meal, it was still a warm autumn night in Tokyo, and the season had gone backwards. Wandered back to home.
