It continued snowing. The transportation system in Hokkaido stopped, but as long as staying home, there was no inconvenience. The snowy landscape looked like being at a ski resort somewhere.
A romantic scenery in front of Kitara. Could enjoy the illumination like a white Christmas. It seemed snowing tonight again.
Had Japanese food and sake on the cold night, the first Japanese foods after new year days. Grilled salmon filet marinated in Saikyo Miso with sauteed carrots. Soaked spinach and bamboo shoots. Start with a hot sake of Kitanokatsu, a popular sake from Nemuro.
After warming up with a hot glass of sake, had a cold sake of Joppari from Aomori's Rokka Shuzo. It was a freshly squeezed winter sake and was delicious.
When woke up the next morning, found a huge pile of snow on the balcony. Worried that the weight of the snow would cause it to fall, but couldn't let it fall down.
At night, remembered warm Okinawa and decided to have an Okinawan Night. Instead of bitter gourd champuru, made fu-chanpuru. It didn't look very good, but was delicious.
Rafute (Okinawan braised pork belly) too. Bought it at Ryubo Store before.
It tasted good and was very healthy.
Paired it with Awamori from the Tsukayama Brewery in Nago, which visited a little over a year ago.
The alcohol content of Awamori was 43 degrees, just the same as whiskey. It was said that Awamori was made to match whiskey. Okinawan people usually consumed with water, but the thicker it was, the more fragrant and delicious it was. The main entrance.
Quaint, historic buildings and gardens.
It is a small Awamori brewery where the owner handled everything from brewing to bottling and selling by himself. Their Awamori was delicious. After all, foods and liquors from the same region matched well.
