Let's explore the snow-covered Kyogoku in search of the water springing from Mt. Yotei!!
After the exploration, you can treat yourself to the tour including “Kyogoku Snowman Shabu shabu” and coffee made with the water you have drawn yourself!
When going from Niseko to Sapporo, you absolutely want to stop by the roadside station “Michi no eki - Meisui no Sato Kyogoku”.
In the station restaurant you can eat a lot of dishes made with the famous, delicious water, but our recommendation for the winter is the "Kyogoku Snowman Shabu shabu", which comes with a cute snowman!
Put the meat and vegetables in the soup made Kyogoku's famous water. It already is delicious, but by using freshly drawn natural water, it becomes even more so!
In this tour, in order to taste that delicious shabu shabu, we will go on an adventure through snow-covered land to find the water springing from Mt. Yotei.
Even with Kyogoku’s snow, you will be safe if you wear snow shoes. Mt. Yotei stands behind the snowy landscape. We will approach the water spring while looking upon a beautiful scenery one cannot usually see.
After the adventure, we will warm up our chilled bodies by eating shabu shabu and delicious siphon coffee made with the water we drew ourselves. If you do not like coffee, you can also try to make tea with a tea whisk.
A majestic view and delicious food. A special winter tour which will satisfy both your spirit and your appetite.
- Kyogoku Snowman Shabu shabu -
It comes with grated radish shaped as a cute snowman, which you can put into the sauce or drop in the hot pot and watch it slowly melt. A healthy and fun to look at delicious shabu shabu.
You can choose from 3 kinds of ingredients. In addition to the Japanese “wagyu” beef and seafood, you can also choose the healthy vegetable shabu shabu. Of course, it is also suitable for vegetarians! A new menu recommendation for this winter.
- Superb coffee with natural water -
Only using the natural water we have drawn ourselves to make shabu shabu would be a waste!
After the meal, let’s enjoy a cup of siphon-brewed coffee. There is also matcha tea for people who do not drink coffee. Try making it with the traditional bamboo tea whisk.
