[Karamatsuen Head Office in Naie] Buckwheat Noodles with Vegetables Are Filled with Tasty Vegetable Produced in Sorachi
Karamatsuen (からまつ園) is a long-established buckwheat noodle restaurant founded in 1969 in Naie town located in the northeastern direction of Sapporo city. The head office is in the Naie located between between Sunagawa city and Iwamizawa city, and they used to have branch restaurants. Only the head office facing National Route 12, the longest straight road in Japan, opens a business now. Karamatsuen corp. runs the restaurant, and Mr. Masamitsu Sato (佐藤 正光) is a company president at present. The restraunt is famous for getting the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition and 2017 Special Edition.
I visited here around 13:00 on Saturday. A few customers savored their meals, and I could enter the restaurant immediately. The restaurant is large, and has an atmosphere of a typical buckwheat noodle restaurant. Counter seats, table seats and small separate Japanese style rooms are provided, so I guess that even family customers and a large number of customers enjoy meals.
Buckwheat Noodles of Hokkaido
Hokkaido occupies about 40% of buckwheat production of Japan, and is the largest buckwheat production in the Japan, and Nagano prefecture, Ibaraki prefecture, Fukushima prefecture and so on follow the Hokkaido. The climate is cool in a summer, and a large temperature gap is great for good buckwheat, and the buckwheat production of the Hokkaido is increasing. Horokanai (幌加内), Fukagawa (深川) and Otoineppu (音威子府) are the 3 largest production places. Especially, the Horokanai is the best buckwheat production and the largest planted area in the Japan, and is well-known as a buckwheat town, and uses buckwheat fields as tourist attractions well. In Fukushima town, Sengen Soba Buckwheat Flowers Viewing Party (千軒そばの花鑑賞会) is held in buckwheat fields, and a fantastic conbination of the buckwheat fields and Matsumae Kagura (松前神楽) can be enjoyed.

I sat at a table seat, and read a menu. Buckwheat Noodles with Vegetables Produced in Sorachi (空知野そば) looked tasty, so I ordered it. The price was JPY 880.
About 10 minutes later, the Buckwheat Noodles with Vegetables Produced in Sorachi was served. A fragrance stimulated my appetite. I ate the tempura immediately, and that was a turnip. It had an interesting texture. It was tasty! The handmade buckwheat noodles were al dente, and were topped with the vegetables such as Chinese Cabbages, the Turnips and Grilled Green Onions. As for these vegetables, Sorachi district is the best planted area in the Japan. It was so good. It was really good.
