It seems that all the mistakes we've made must be faced today. If the negotiation among some countries did not go well about their own territories, an economic special area should be designated for the benefit to all the countries involved. We have to find the way that will be accepted by the pertinent stakeholders. We are the generation whom was handed down the difficult problem to solve. I believe that we can make it!
Last Saturday was fine for BBQ and good for stuck negotiation. Everybody should sit on the director's chairs around the grill, drinking beer. Some good ideas to solve the problems between the countries must be come up with.
Sophisticated manner must be required on the international stage but it may be difficult for arrogant countries with some enemies.
This time we grilled saury on the bank of Toyohira River in Sapporo City.
Potatoes and pork steak are the must in the outside BBQ for us.
Until today September 30(Sun.), culinary delights produced all over Hokkaido can be seen and tried in Odori Park in Sapporo City. On September 27(Thu.) , the stands selling the produce and products sourced in Sorachi sub-prefectural area increased and were beefed up.

Nanporo Town set the stand for selling Kimuchi, pickled cabbage or Chinese cabbage flavoured with red hot chili, and Jingisukan, lamb meat with special BBQ sauce. Of course, Kimuchi Ramen is the big draw of the day.
Yubari City set the stand to sell mainly "curry noodle soup in cooperation with well-founded restaurant Yoshinoya. It is different from the national famous fast-food diner chain Yoshinoya that provides with so-called Gyu-don, boiled beef and veggie rice bowl flavoured with broth and soy-sauce-based soup.
Mr.Ueda is working for the municipality of Yubari after the city went bankruptcy. He did good job on the day as he has done in Yubari City so far.
Mikasa City sells black fried chicken called Sekitan Zangi which means coal fried chicken, skewered grilled chicken and chitterlings fire pot flavoured with chicken sauce.
Naganuma Town sells ice cream and veggies. Various kinds of flavours they have and strawberry taste sells like pancakes. Akabira City sells "Gan Gan Nabe" which means chitterlings and veggie fire pot. Mr.Sato next to my wife is the master player of nose flute and showed excellent performance in front of the booth for selling veggies produced in Yuni Town as other municipality like Naganuma Town, Iwamizawa City, Kuriyama Town, Takikawa City, Urausu Town and Sunagawa City. The food sold in each booth changed and filled up the booth every morning. Please visit Odori Park in Sapporo City today! Utashinai City sells pickled veggies as it does in New Chitose international Airport.
First of all, this cheese-taste snack is irresistible !
This is fried rice-cake , so harder than cheetos made of corn. Tougher and crispier than corn-basis snack so worth more than 525 Japanese yen, I think and so does my wife.
I could not take photos that shows its perspectives so please check more clear view at http://www.yunni-spa.com/
It also has the accommodation with very nice furniture. I am planning to book my host family in Albuquerque, New Mexico
in this hotel next year. Access to the airport is nice and the circumstances are excellent. How do you feel abot the plan, Kathleen?
I will send you email soon.

I have never heard boos and catcalls from the people who visited Yuni garden and resort.
I could not take good photos of this garden yesterday, so please check the beautiful scenery of this garden at http://www.yuni-garden.co.jp/
Not so many people were inside the building yesterday but it was so comfortable for me that I bought some snacks for 525 Japanese yen.
To use the lawn mowers in this garden, it was fine with dry wind and moderate temperature.
It seems that the insects in this garden are preparing for winter in the situation of larva or pupa.
Yuni Town does not have a roadside station with locally-sourced veggie and other produce as well as products made in Yuni Town and neghbouring towns.
I bought the cheese taste rice cracker on the left for my wife as a souvenir but i was so hungry on my way of business jaunt that I ate up the half of the bag.
This is the fried burdock sold as a snack. Most of the snack is 525 Japanese yen for one plastic bag. Is it competitive price, considering the payroll of the tourists from abroad?
Melon taste jelly made of Yubari Melon by Patisserie Hori is one of the biggest draw in the company.
This soup curry was developed by this Yuni Resort Company recently and got the main display space in this Farmer's Market.
As you may know, Sorachi Valley produces good wine in this five to ten years. These bottled wine named Saikonso is made in Maoi Winery of Naganuma Town. Located on the Maoi hillside overlooking the town of naganuma, is Maoi Winery which forms a part of Saikonso, a small farm run by Mr. and Mukai.

The fireplace is decorated for Halloween, as well as the shops and restaurants.
I have not heard of the Halloween party or "Trick or treat" events in this garden and Yuni Town but the atmosphere is so nice in this season even if the gardens are not filled with flowers.
Needless to say, a hot spring spa is near the garden with an accommodation. "Yunni-noYu" is the name of the spa. Many citizens of Yuni Town and neighbouring town visit the spa everyday, as well as the tourists dropping by.
To stay fit, it may be dangerous to visit Sorachi sub-prefectural area because it means to pack the extra pounds and expand our waistlines.
