Walking on Drift Ice
The dish of grilled mutton known as jingisukan (“Genghis Khan”), washed down with the local beer, is the classic food fare in Hokkaido. The dish involves grilling mutton on a domed hot plate together with vegetables, such as bean sprouts and onions. The grilled food is then eaten with a strongly flavored dipping sauce.
A highly recommended spot for trying jingisukan is Sapporo Beer Garden. Its Genghis Khan Hall is a beer hall that is housed in an atmospheric historical building, which served as a government offi ce in the pioneer days of Hokkaido. With ivy climbing up its redbrick walls, this grand old building is a wonderful place to visit in every season.
You can enjoy jingisukan with draft beer direct from the nearby factory in the large beer hall. The hall offers all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink options, so it is a great place to take children or enjoy with a crowd. The excellent food goes down well and makes a perfect dinner for people of all ages. Sapporo Beer Garden is something you should not miss when sightseeing in Hokkaido.
