[Yojo Hormone in Kitami] Fresh and Tasty Broiled Pig Innards
Yojo Hormone (四条ホルモン) is a broiled pig innard restraunt founded in 1977 in an entertainment distric, Kita 4jo, Kitami city, and is relatively near Kitami Station. Sugisho Corp. runs it. Grilled Meat is said to be a local speciality of the Kitami, and the Yojo Hormone is one of the most popular broiled pig innard restraunts loved by local people. The restraunt on the 2nd floor of Tekkosen Building (鉄鉱泉ビル) is always crowded with customers. 7-Eleven opens a business on the 1st floor. The restraunt is a litle large, and the interior decoration is stylish, too. I think that an atmosphere of this restraunt is suitable for dating. Customers must enter the restraunt after taking off their shoes. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.
An express bus "Dreamint Okhotsk-go (ドリーミントオホーツク号)" runs between the Sapporo and the Kitami, and Limited Express Sekihoku-go (特急石北号), an express bus, runs between the Kitami and Asahikawa, and Senpoku-go (釧北号), an express bus, runs between the Kitami and Kushiro. Besides, Rent-a-car can be rented around Kitami Station.
Kitami (北見) that about 120,000 people live is the 9th largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and is one of regional hub cities of the Northeastern Hokkaido area. The Kitami became incorporated with Rubeshibe town (留辺蘂), Tanno town (端野) and Tokoro town (常呂) in 2006, and has became the largest city by area in the Hokkaido. In Japan, it is the 4th latgest city by the area. The Kitami is also an agriculture city, and Onion and White Runner Bean are famous as a local product. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 30 degrees in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to nearly -25 degrees in a winter, and it snow hard, too. Read More
Broiled Pig Innards
I visited here around 17:30 on Sunday. Since it was Sunday, I expected that few customers enjoy their meals, but it was almost full. Because this restraunt is popular, visitors should usually make a reservation in advance. I sat at last one counter seat, and asked a waiter about restraunt's recommendation. He replied "Rump Steak and Kimchi". The pig innards and deluxe pork stomach looked tasty other than those. I ordered the Rump Steak, the Pig Innards, the Deluxe Pork Stomach, the Kimchi and a non-alcohol beer-taste beverage. The prices were JPY 2408 in total. In addition, Hanging Tender has a good reputation.
A charcoal stove was put in my front, and the dishes and a drink were served. The fresh meats looked beautiful and tasty. The meats were grilled for about 3 minutes when I began to grill the meats on the clay charcoal stove. I had a bite, it was good! The Rump Steak was tender, and the pig innards and the deluxe pork stomach were chewy. I usually ate the meats to dip in sauce, and sometimes are the meats after seasoning the meats with pepper and salt. This was good, too. I am glad that it is reasonable price, too. Thanks for the tasty meats!

By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons. If you are interested in tour trips, you should visit the club tourism's website for details.
