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.

Arrangement Currently, you can eat torimeshi at several restaurants such as drive-ins and restaurants in Bibai City, but even if the general method of cooking chicken and rice together is the same, the seasoning and detailed recipe are different. Its roots come from the fact that farmers who settled in the reclamation of Hokkaido raised chickens to supplement their livelihood and began to use the precious chickens as hospitality dishes. Rice, stir-fried meat, and motsu are cooked with soy sauce, sugar, and sake, and the rice crumbs soaked in the extract shine a glossy candy color. Because it uses almost no other ingredients or seasonings, it has a strong chicken flavor in both aroma and taste, and has a unique personality that is different from other mixed rice. In Nakamura-cho, a rural village located along the Ishikari River in Bibai City, farmers' mothers continue to inherit this tradition and continue to cook traditional torimeshi without additives every morning in order to protect and spread the local taste. Torimeshi, which has become a staple for Bibai residents, is sold not only at homes but also at several restaurants and supermarkets in the city, and it is one of the pleasures to compare the flavors of the local area.

Nakashibetsu Tourist Association
Nov. 5, 2023
Nice to meet you, everyone! This is the Nakashibetsu Tourist Association. This is my first posting on COOL JAPAN VIDEOS, so this time I would like to introduce and appeal of Nakashibetsu Town in Hokkaido. Thank you in advance! Hokkaido Shibetsu DistrictNakashibetsu Town is a town with a population of 22,524 (as of the end of September 2023 (Reiwa 5)) located in the eastern part of Hokkaido. Nakashibetsu Town in Hokkaido is blessed with nature, beautiful pastures and mountains, and agriculture such as dairy farming, Bareisho, sugar beet, and daikon is thriving. Nakashibetsu Town, which boasts one of the largest producers of raw milk in Japan, produces a lot of milk, ice cream, cheese, etc., and is gaining popularity. The climate is inland climate, and snow cover is relatively low in Hokkaido. In summer, the average temperature is around 20 degrees Celsius, and in winter, the average temperature is around minus 10 degrees Celsius. Next, we will introduce popular tourist attractions in Nakashibetsu Town, Hokkaido! ●Kaiyodai Observatory The 330-degree horizon seen from the "Kaiyodai Observatory" on a plateau at an altitude of 270m is spectacular! It is a spot where you can experience the "roundness of the earth". It is also popular because you can see the Hokkaido heritage "lattice-shaped windbreak forest of Konsen Plateau Lattice-shaped windbreak"! This huge windbreak was created across Nakashibetsu Town, Shibetsu Town, Betsukai Town, and Shibecha Town, and the total area of windbreak forests in the four towns is about 12,000 ha (about 2,500 times the size of Tokyo Dome). The full extent of the windbreak can only be seen from an airplane. In 2000 (Heisei 12), astronaut Mamoru Mohri took a video from the Space Shuttle Endeavour showed a lattice-shaped windbreak, so it became a hot topic as "an artificial object visible from space". We also recommend the gourmet "Kaiyodai Observatory Happy Honey Soft Serve Ice Cream" and "Siretoco Donuts" that can be eaten at the café in the observatory! Please enjoy it when you visit. * The café is open from late April to the end of October. ● Milk Road The "Nakashibetsu TownNorthern Road Route 19", a straight road with a total length of about 6 km, is one of the tourist attractions called "Nakashibetsu Milk Road" because of the tanker trucks that carry milk. Touring while looking at the magnificent meadows that spread around the road is popular, and it is also popular with motorcycle riders. ●Mutsu Pasture "Mutsu Pasture" was started when Masanori Hata, a writer known for his animal lover nicknamed "Mutsugoro-san", was attracted to the Hokkaido horse "Dosanko" and raised two horses. At Mutsu Pasture's "Hidamari Equestrian Club", you can experience horseback riding where you can communicate with the horses more deeply than at a normal ranch! It starts with brushing and saddling, and the staff slowly moves through the forest and grassland while controlling the horse without pulling it. You will be carefully instructed before departure, so beginners can rest assured! ●Midorigaoka Forest Park Campground It is a park with an area of about 57 hectares, including bungalows, free sites, bike sites, playground equipment, and a bird observation center. On the 6 km long forest road, you can also enjoy forest bathing while looking at the Shiretoko mountain range. 【Opening Period】Campsite: May 1st ~ October 31st In addition, the "Nakashibetsu Airport Information Center" in Nakashibetsu Airport provides information on accommodation facilities from information around the airport. There is also a car rental window on the first floor. Please feel free to use it! Next, we will introduce attractive events and festivals in Nakashibetsu Town, Hokkaido! ■ Nakashibetsu Summer Festival It is a summer festival held for two days in August every year in Nakashibetsu Town, Hokkaido. The sight of about 6,000 lanterns lit up and colored is the biggest attraction! Stage performance events and the Odori Parade are also held. (Contents at the time of the 2023 event) ■ Nakashibetsu Winter Festival It is a winter festival held for two days in February every year. The "Jumbo Slide" made of snow installed at the venue is very popular with children! There are also stalls by local shops, etc., and you can enjoy Hokkaido gourmet food. There will also be an exhibition of snow sculptures and a fireworks festival on the first night. * In February 2023, snow sculptures and fireworks have been canceled due to a reduced event.
