My time in Hokkaido is coming to an end, and this evening I fly down to Tokyo where I shall probably have no time to blog. So, next time, the Poupounette Gang should be back at the helm! In the meantime, I thought I would leave you with some food-related shots. Thanks for coming along with me!
First off, here is where we had lunch every day at the racetrack. Hardly gourmet food but excellent noodles nonethelesss!
One evening in Obihiro, we ate at a tiny place specialising in "Yamabe" a kind of trout. We first had sashimi (raw fish), followed by a "domburi" which is a bowl of rice topped with, in this case, yamabe tempura, and accompanied with miso soup.
Kushiro is a seaside town and so the fish markets are really impressive!
Hokkaido is particularly well-known for its crabs!
A typical lantern outside a restaurant:
And finally, one of Japan's famous musk melons. This one was selling for about US$35. They can be even more expensive!
