The branch near JR Sapporo Station and our flat is closed at 11:15 on weekday, so we had to come to the area for skewered &grilled chicken. Of course, the night supper should be wrapped up with the buckwheat noodle soup topped with grilled chicken.
The dressing of this salad is basically garlic and salt. It was so nice as a starter at 23:00.
Japanese traditional horror story "Biwa Strings Player Mimi-nashi HOICHI " was performed by the Japanese traditional danc-master Mr. Narusuke HANAYAGI and Japanese singer and commentator His Excellency Damon KOGURE in Arte Piazza, Bibai City.
The details of the beautiful garden and sculptures can be seen on
Damon Kogure is described precisely on
He sang songs that fit the horror story to a T and told the story.
The stage for dancing was near the white sculpture like a gate.
In the darkness and artificial fog after a shower like a squall in south-east Asia, the atmosphere was so nice to tell the story.
It was so beautiful and solemn night in the outskirts of Bibai City.

Can you see the silhouette of the shrine? It is OHTA Shrine called "The shrine stands at the most dangerous place"
It is 30 degrees in Celsius in Sapporo City and Iwamizawa City. Is it hot in your neighbors ?
The hotter, the better before a chug-a-lug of beer in a frozen pint.
If you ran out of power, please beef you up in this Yakiniku BBQ restaurant "Ganko Matsu" which means "stubborn pine tree" in Japanese.
The surface of the tables may be a little bit oily, so please visit the restaurant in appropriate attire.
Needless to say, incredible!
I strongly recommend you to try the BBQ restaurant in Iwamizawa. Yo should go and if you talk about Japanese yakiniku BBQ restaurant in Japan, it is the "must" to have the grilled meat in this restaurant.
