About two weeks ago, I joined a nature tour at Nanae ski site and on the way home, I found a sign board saying Chillaxing Winter cafe near Yamakawa ranch. Yamakwa ranch is famous for its delicious soft served ice cream and the cafe is located just a few minutes or less by car from the ice cream stand to the direction for Shikabe. You can find the sign board on your right.
There was an one storied house following the sign. The cafe is only open during the winter, until the end of March at this moment.
I ordered a premium beef sandwich with a bowl of vegetable soup. The price was 850yen.
The beef patty is only added salt and pepper and the owner told me that he opens the cafe to let people know this dish. He seems to be the owner or a person who works for Yamakawa ranch.
The cafe is full of cow goods and you can enjoy seeing them, too;D
Akiko lives in a city next to Hakodate and loves to drive around Hakodate and surrounding area. I hope people who visit or live in the Southwest area of Hokkaido come to love the area, too. 函館の隣町在住で道南エリアのドライブ大好きAkikoです。道南を訪れたり、住んでいる人が土地を好きになってくれたらなぁ、と思います。
