Bibai Tourism and Products Association
Nov. 23, 2023
Bibai Yakitori Bibai City, which once flourished as a coal mine, has a number of soul foods that locals love. One of them is "Bibai Yakitori", which has been loved as a source of stamina for coal miners. The best feature is the "motsu skewers" that contain several types of motsu, chicken skin, and thighs on one skewer. This unique style was born at a store called "Mifune" around Showa 30 and has been inherited by several stores in the city. The biggest feature of Bibai's yakitori is that it is all sticking liver, hearts, gizzards, kumquats, etc., chicken skin, and thighs on a skewer, and if you cut a chicken, you can eat it all deliciously without waste. A variety of textures and flavors spread in the mouth, and it has a very deep taste. The order of skewering is the skin at the bottom, the next is the onion like Hokkaido, the next is the motsu, the onion is again, and the last is the thigh meat. Onions are a specialty of Bibai, and when baked, the sweetness increases and goes well with chicken. There are skewers on the menu that are only meat, but customers overwhelmingly order "motsu skewers". When ordering yakitori, Bibai usually orders large quantities in units of 10 bottles. It is normal for each person to eat 10 or 20 bottles. Seasoning is simple with salt and pepper. Let's become a Bibai citizen and enjoy the deliciousness of the whole chicken.

Moseushi Town, Hokkaido

HELLO TO EVERYONE WHO WATCHES COOL JAPAN VIDEOS! This is Moseushi Town, Hokkaido. Hokkaido Uryu DistrictMoseushi Town is located almost in the center of Hokkaido and is blessed with clean water from the Ishikari River system, and is a town that has prospered in rice cultivation. It is the third smallest town in Hokkaido by area, but it is full of various charms. This will be my first posting, so I will introduce Moseushi Town and provide information on popular tourist spots and specialties! The climate (weather) of Moseushi Town in Hokkaido is an inland climate, so it can be about 30 degrees Celsius in summer and minus 20 degrees Celsius or less in winter. The snow melts around April in an average year. Please refer to it as a measure to protect yourself from the cold when traveling. Hokkaido's Moseushi Town has a wide range of delicious gourmet dishes made with local ingredients. Next, we will deliver information on special products! The best specialty of Moseushi Town in Hokkaido is delicious rice! The "secret of its deliciousness" lies in the method of rice cultivation. In Moseushi Town, "apple mint", a type of herb, is planted on the furrow path of the rice field. Since the insect repellent effect of herbs protects rice ears from pests, the use of pesticides is minimized, and low-pesticide rice cultivation can be realized. "Kitasaika" is one of the rice made by such low-pesticide rice cultivation. "Premium Kitasaika", which is vacuum-packed "Nanatsuboshi" (Hokkaido brand rice) with a protein value of 6.8% or less, which is only 30% of the total harvest produced in Moseushi Town, is also recommended! In addition, apple mint is harvested and used as an ingredient in specialty products such as "From the Village of Herbs (herbal liqueur)" and "100% natural herbal water". The special products introduced are also delivered as a thank you gift for the Furusato Nozei tax payment in Moseushi Town, Hokkaido. We offer a variety of thank-you gifts such as a large raw dorayaki "Deka Raw" from a long-established Japanese confectionery store in Moseushi Town and "258 pickled ingredients without additives", so please check the Furusato Nozei Tax Payment site! Here are some of the most popular sightseeing spots in Moseushi Town, Hokkaido! ●Moseushi Town Water Park Urara It is a park with various playground equipment located about a 15-minute walk from Moseushi Station. The free waterslide is fun even for the little ones! Newly established in 2022 (Reiwa 4), the colorful complex playground equipment "Curling Combination" is also recommended. In the park, there is also a park golf course (charged), basketball three-on-three courts (free), and a barbecue corner (reservation required), so you can enjoy sports and the outdoors! In addition, there is also an indoor curling hall "Moseushi Town Curling Hall" (charged) in the park! In the 1980s, Moseushi Town started the activities of the Moseushi Curling Association, and in 2003, the long-awaited dedicated facility "Moseushi Town Curling Hall" was completed. It can be used as a playground facility in the summer from May to September, and as an indoor curling hall from November to March. Brushes, shoes, sliders, and other equipment are available for rent, so please feel free to experience them! Since the 4th year of 2022 (Reiwa 4), Japan's top-level women's curling team "FORTIUS" has been appointed as a cheering ambassador for Moseushi Town, and has been enlivening curling in the town. ●Moseushi Onsen Peperu Located right next to Moseushi Town Water Park Urara, "Moseushi Onsen Peperu" is a facility where you can enjoy pure natural hot springs that opened in 1993. Currently, the hot spring is closed in preparation for the reopening, but it is scheduled to reopen around the end of April 2024. Please come and visit us when it reopens! In addition, the adjacent accommodation facilities and cottages are still available! Cottage Building A and Building B are cottages with a capacity of 8 people and are recommended for families and groups.

Oumu Tourist Association
Aug. 9, 2023
Nice to meet you, Omu Town Tourism Association! Hokkaido Omu Town faces the Sea of Okhotsk. The sunrise from the horizon is also a symbol of the town. In COOL JAPAN VIDEOS's first post, we will introduce you to Omu Town and the highlights of Hokkaido Omu Town where you can enjoy delicious food. There are no trains Omu Town, so you can get there by car, rental car, or bus. It takes about 4 hours 30 minutes ~ 5 hours 30 minutes by expressway from Sapporo. If you are traveling by air, please use Asahikawa Airport or Okhotsk Monbetsu Airport. It takes about 3 hours by car from Asahikawa Airport Omu Town and about 1 hour Omu Town from Okhotsk Monbetsu Airport. The climate (weather) in Omu Town is cool throughout the year, especially from January to March, when drift ice docks in the Sea of Okhotsk, so the temperature is low. In winter, the temperature may drop to minus 20 degrees Celsius on some days, so be careful about the cold when visiting. Next, we will introduce the representative sightseeing spots of Omu Town. The recommended base for sightseeing in Omu Town is "Roadside Station Oumu" in the center of Omu Town city. You can also sell Omu Town specialties, look for souvenirs, and enjoy local gourmet foods such as "Dattan Soba". Dattan soba (Dattan Soba) is also called "bitter soba noodles" and contains about 100 times more "rutin", which is a type of polyphenol and the source of bitterness, about 100 times more than normal soba noodles, but now it is easy to eat because we have planted a variety called "Manten Kirari" that softens the bitterness and retains the nutrients. Rutin has a powerful antioxidant effect, so it can be expected to prevent weekly illness and improve blood sugar and blood pressure, making it a soba noodle that has been attracting attention due to the health boom in recent years. There is also an observation deck modeled after an airship 24 meters above the ground, and it is also a spot where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Obu. Located about 12 minutes by car from downtown Omu Town, Cape Hinode is a superb view point of sunrise. On the small hill of the cape, there is also the all-glass "Cape Hinode Observatory La Luna", and there are binoculars that can be used free of charge at the observatory. "La Luna" means "moon" in Italian. It is said that it was named "It seems that the moon floats above the cape." You can enjoy the scenery of the Sea of Okhotsk in summer and the panoramic view of over 180 degrees in front of you during the drift ice season in winter. There is "Omu Town Cape Hinode Campsite" about 7 minutes on foot from Cape Hinode. It consists of a free site and bungalows, and is bustling during the summer camp every year. You can spend a comfortable time surrounded by nature. There is also Hotel Cape Hinode around this campsite where you can take a day trip, so please use it when sightseeing Omu Town. Here, we will deliver information on Omu Town's specialties and recommended gourmet food! The specialty of Hokkaido Omu Town is delicious seafood nurtured by rich nature. Among seafood, fresh scallops, hairy crabs, and salmon are gaining popularity. Since you can fully enjoy the bounty of the sea, processed products are also recommended as souvenirs! Hokkaido Omu Town's hometown tax payment offers thank-you goods that take advantage of these rich nature and local specialties such as delicious marine products. The popular "saltwater sea urchin (Ezobahun sea urchin)" (2023 has already ended) is grown by eating the nutrient-rich Rishiri kelp that grows in Obu, and is characterized by its rich taste. In addition, the mineral-rich scallops caught in Omu Town, where scallop fishing is popular, can be grilled, fried, and of course sashimi. Omu Town, the breeding and production of "Angus beef" is also thriving. In general cattle barn, they are raised on high-calorie food, but Angus cows are raised on large pastures and are characterized by relatively low fat and a lot of redness. As a gift in return for hometown tax payment, "Angus beef set (frozen)" is also available, so please enjoy it. Please experience the charm of Omu Town in your own way, such as superb scenery rich in nature, gourmet food, and outdoor activities. In the future, COOL JAPAN VIDEOS will continue to deliver fascinating Omu Town information. Thank you very much!

The Assabu of Hokkaido, which has a population of about 3,500, has low humidity throughout the year and abundant forests with moderate rainfall.
Since it is located in the south of Hokkaido, it is relatively warm compared to other areas in Hokkaido, and you can enjoy the atmosphere of the four seasons, and the weather is suitable for sightseeing and migration.

The highlight of Assabu is "Quail Dam Auto Campground Hatcham Forest".
The expansive green campsite is perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city and spending some quiet time in the great outdoors.

In addition, at the Tsuchibashi Nature Observation and Education Forest (Reku no Mori), you can observe a wide variety of plants and small animals, and it is a spot that both adults and children can enjoy, such as field athletic recreation camps.

Assabu potato "Mae Quinn" is characterized by its unique sweetness and smooth texture, and farmers can enjoy the taste that has been painstakingly done.
In addition, Assabu's specialty "black bean tea" uses Assabu specialty large grain light black soybeans, which have rich flavor and excellent health benefits, which are loved by many people.
And Ezo Maitake mushrooms, a rare variety made only in Hokkaido, are characterized by their rich umami and high aroma, and can be used in a variety of dishes.
Although it will be easy, we have introduced the climate, sightseeing spots, gourmet and specialty information of Assabu!

Next, I will tell you about the migration and settlement information of Assabu.
The number of people who are considering moving to Assabu is increasing year by year.

Assabu has various systems in place to support migrants.
First, a migration experience program is offered, allowing you to experience life in the town temporarily.
Through this program, you can feel closer to the living environment and community of the town.

The Assabu also actively provides job information for migrants.
There are a wide range of occupations, from primary industries such as agriculture and forestry to the creation of new businesses that utilize local resources.
Migrants are provided with job placement tailored to their individual skills and experience, and can receive support to start a new career.

In addition, Assabu provides a variety of assistance schemes to support migrant livelihoods.
For example, there are substantial support to improve the quality of life, such as incentives for farmers, gifts for childbirth, and incentives for home ownership.

This program accepts families raising children who want to study at nursery schools from all over the country and temporarily spends time in the Assabu, so that the whole family can feel the vast nature, local life and culture.
Abundant nature, delicious food, a warm community and generous support await you.

Currently, many people want to move, but there is a problem that there is a shortage of housing such as vacant houses.
If there is anyone who can cooperate or help us to accept many immigrants and permanent residents with the aim of becoming "the most wonderful depopulated city in the world", please contact us!

Takaoyamaguchi Station, the entrance to the Takao Mountain climbing area, is lined with many restaurants. Tororo (grated yam) has long been eaten around Mt. Takao, and there are many restaurants where you can enjoy tororo cuisine. I ate grated yam on the way home from a recent excursion. Tororo has a soothing effect on a tired body. If you are tired after climbing a mountain, you should definitely try it.
