View of Mt. Moiwa on a clear morning. 531 meters above sea level.
The summit can be reached in about 1 to 2 hours by walk taking one of the five trails. The mountainside, which was protected since the early days, was designated as "Moiwa Primeval Forest," a natural monument of scenic beauty and a historic site. An event "Moiwa Mountain Day" is held every year around May 31.
Mt. Teine, 1,023 meters above sea level. In 1926, the Hokkaido University ski club built Japan's oldest authentic ski hut (Paradise Hut) as one of its mountain skiing bases, and it was considered the birthplace of mountaineering and skiing in Hokkaido. It was the venue for the 11th Winter Olympics held in Sapporo (1972). It is now visited by more than 1 million skiers a year.
For breakfast with a view of the two major mountains of Sapporo, bought Maritozzo at the Sapporo Grand Hotel. Got a member's card that offers a 5% discount, and it also seemed valid at the Sapporo Park Hotel. Found these two hotels were in the same group.
In the evening, had moussaka, a left over from the previous stay.
Along with Secoma's 50th anniversary Bordeaux-style blend that was bought and stocked up on during the last stay.
The next day was chicken curry that was made and left over from the last stay. It is delicious as frozen and aged.
Hatsuhinode Junmai Daiginjo Unfiltered Nama-shu from Haneda Shuzo in Kitayama, Kyoto. Made with 100% Gohyakumangoku, new yeast Kyo-no-Koi, and water from the Katsura River headwaters. It was a powerful cold sake (17.5° alcohol by volume) with a hint of acidity.
A Spanish white wine bought at Cave de Bamboo in Niseko on the way back from Hakodate. The variety was Verdejo.
Salmon Meuniere. The regular menu item since the last stay in Honolulu. Instead of fennel, it was served with mitsuba leaves, chives, and sautéed mashed potatoes.
With sautéed potatos.
