Jingisukan

Mongolian barbecue dish popular across Hokkaido: heat up a grill shaped like Genghis Khan's hat (hence the name), and throw raw lamb on top of it until it's done. There's even a pop song about it.

Lucky Pierrot restaurant, Hakodate

(viewed 1745 times)
Lucky Pierrot is a chain of burger bars scattered across Hakodate. Unusually, they're not all identical: each branch has been allowed to cultivate its own style. The one near Jujigai tram stop, for example, has Christmas decorations and Christmas music all year round.

Third leg of our holiday, where we moved on to the city of Hakodate and the charmingly named Winning Hotel. Picture 2 is a burned-out sunset taken from our harbour view room.
