Hachimanzaka Story/八幡坂Story

I visited this restaurant in August 2006.

It's relatively new one and you can know it from its lemon yellow appearance. It is located in the middle of Hachimanzaka slope, which is one of the most beautiful and famous slopes in Motomachi. At the top end of this slope, there stands Nishi high school and it commands a good view of Hakodate ports and moored Seikan Ferry boat Mashumaru.

The restaurant is located left side of the slope when you walking down the slope. Its specialties are stew and rolled sponge cake.

I ordered a seasonal lunch set. Cold cream stew, carrot pilaf, salad and wine jelly are served on a plate. I could choose ingredient of stew either seafood or roast beef. I chose former and I liked it. It costed 1180yen and a cup of coffee after the meal was included.

The building was new and inside was very clean and beautiful and much larger than I imagined.

Mosstrees/モストリーズ

When you visit waterfront area where red brick warehouses face Hakodate harbour, how about visiting this cafe restaurant. The name is Mosstrees and you can find this cafe when you walk along sea shore to the opposite direction from Hakodate Station. Within ten minutes you will find a dark green building on your left.

Kikuizumi/菊泉

From the way from Old Public Hall of Hakodate Ward to Christian churches in Motomachi area, you can find this cafe "Kikuizumi(菊泉)" on your left. The building used to be a liquor shop, so you can see sake bottle shaped sign over the door. Here light meals are served.

When I visited this cafe, I ordered a set of whale soup and a rice ball(kujira-jiru set くじら汁セット). I don't remember the price exactly, but it was around 650yen. Inside of the rice ball, there is a umeboshi, or pickled Japanese apricot. Umeboshi is sour and salty. If you are not accustomed to the flavour, you may feel it dosen't taste good.

As for the whale soup, it is one of the local foods here. It is eaten on New Year's Eve or during New Year Holidays here, in the Southern part of Hokkaido.

Do you know why Japanese eat whale meat? Following a Buddhist discipline, Japanese didn't eat animal meat but fish. Now everyone knows while is mammal, but it was categorized as fish. Whale meat has been an important souce of protein for Japanese.

Another day, I dropped in here for coffee and tasted ogura toast(小倉トースト). It's toast and a plenty amount of sweet bean paste. If you love sweet bean paste, or anko, you must be satisfied with it.

I'll write this blog site in a bilingal form/ブログを二ヶ国語にします

I'd like to write this blog site in a bilingual form from this year, 2007.

So far, I've run this blog site mainly in English, because I'm not confident in my English expression. But I changed my mind. I hope this blog site will be useful for people who study English or Japanese, or perhaps both, and who have to depend either language.

I hope your frequent visit to this blog site.

2007年を記念してこのブログサイトを二カ国語で経営して行きたいと思います。
今まで、日本語を入れなかったのはいまいち英語表現に自信がなかったためですが、二カ国語にすることで、英語・日本語両方の言語を勉強している人たち、どちらかの言語にたよっている人のお役に立てれば、と思いました。

今後ともご愛顧くださいませ。
