Asahikawa (旭川) that about 340,000 people live is the 2nd largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and has flourished as the center of the North Hokkaido area. Woodworks have been prosperous since the old days, and furniture is famous. Because water is clear, a liquor such as sake of Otokoyama (男山) and Godo Shusei (合同酒精) are famous, too. Popular tourist attractions such as Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園) and Biei (美瑛) are around the Asahikawa, so a lot of tourists use tourist bases in the North Hokkaido. As for a climate, the Asahikawa is located in Kamikawa Basin, the largest basin in the Hokkaido, so it is hot that temperature rises to 30 degrees C in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to -25 degrees C in a winter, and it snow very hard, too.

Salt Broth Ramen

I visited the head office around 17:00 on a national holiday. It had an atmosphere such as a typical ramen restraunt. No customers came. I sat a table seat, and read a menu. Recommendation of the ramen restaurant was the Salt Broth Ramen (塩ラーメン). I ordered it. The price was JPY 820.

About 5 minutes later, the Salt Broth Ramen was served. While I was waiting for the ramen, 5 groups of customers came to the ramen restraunt in succession. I thought that the Santoka head office was really popular after all. A roasted Pork Fillet, bamboo Shoots, a cloud ear mushroom, a kamaboko with spiral whirlpool-like pattern, green onions and a small Japanese ume were on noodles. I hear that the idea of the Salt Broth Ramen comes from a slim fair skinned woman with thick-color lipsticks. A small Japanese ume only on the Salt Broth Ramen stands out in milky white soup, and I think that it is beautiful color combination.
