The reception of the US Independence Day is arranged so nicely every year. Top brasses of each area are invited. This time, Sapporo Park Hotel was the venue of the national day.
The lunch course of that day was wrapped up with the famous roll cake of Obihiro-based patisserie "Rokkatei".
Fried asparagus and crab cream croquette might be said "the main dish" of the lunch.
The lunch of the hidden restaurant in the woods of Furano City started with a cup of miso soup with sliced little bamboo shoot which is called "wakatake-jiru".
The wood deck of the restaurant hidden in the woods was wet after the rainfall early in the morning on that day.
Recently, I heard that this restaurant hidden in the woods of Furano City had been closed. All the guests who want to savor the quality cuisine are required to have a reservation.
As you may know, Hokkaido and the State of Hawaii established a sister-state relationship on May 8(Mon.) in Honolulu. Before the signing ceremony, Governor Harumi Takahashi visited Ke Kula Kaiapuni o'Anuenue where Hawaiian traditional language is taught to the kids.
