[Namiki Head Office in Sapporo] Tasty Chicken Tempura and Itasoba Buckwheat Noodles Set Meal

Namiki

Itasoba Namiki (板そば なみ喜) is a popular buckwheat noodles restaurant in Sapporo city. The head office is in Kita ward, and a branch restaurant is in Shinoro. The head office is located in the north side of Hokkaido University with large site. It takes about 20 minutes from a subway station on foot, so I guess that it may be inconvenient if visitors do not go there by a car. I heard from my friend that Chicken Tempura and Itasoba (鶏天と板そば) were tasty, and I visited here. The restraunt has an atomosphere such as a typical buckwheat noodles restarunt with a warmth of woods. Counter seats, table seats and small separate Japanese style rooms are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

Hokkaido University

The Hokkaido University is a national university in Kita ward, Sapporo city, and is close to the Sapporo Station. Its common name is Hokudai (ほくだい). Its antecedent is Sapporo Agricultural College (札幌農学校). Dr. Clark, one of founders, and his words Boys be ambitious become well-known. The area is 1.77 million m2 in the center of the Sapporo, and the site looks like a national park with a lot of huge trees. A part of university grounds are open to the public, and visitors can look around. Central Lawn (中央ローン), Bust of Dr. Clark (クラーク博士の胸像), Elm Grove (エルムの森), Hokkaido University Museum (北海道大学総合博物館), Monument in Honor of Dr. Inazo Nitobe (新渡戸稲造博士顕彰碑), Ono Pond (大野池), Poplar Trees Lined Path (ポプラ並木) and Ginko Trees Lined Road (イチョウ並木) are famous. The university grounds are a long site that extends north to south, and stretches 4 subway stations, Subway Nanboku Line "Sapporo Station", Subway Nanboku Line "Kita-12jo Station", Subway Nanboku Line "Kita-18jo Station" and Subway Nanboku Line "Kita-24jo Station". In case of walking, I suppose that it takes 30-120 minutes on foot. Cherry blossoms can be enjoyed in a spring, and fresh green plants can be enjoyed in a summer, and fall foliage can be enjoyed in an autumn, and snow views can be enjoyed in a winter. Especially, in the summer, tourists can feel an idyllic impression in a scenery of green plants, the blue sky and school buildings. Read More

SAPPORO

Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More

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.

Buckwheat Noodles

I sat at a counter seat, and asked a waitress their recommendation to satisfy myself. She replied "It was Chicken Tempura" as I expected. They serve some types of buckwheat noodles such as Zarusoba buckwheat noodles (ざるソバ * Buckwheat noodles served on a flat bamboo sieve), Itasoba buckwheat noodles (板ソバ * Buckwheat noodles served on a flat wooden box), and my friend recommended the Itasoba buckwheat noodles, so I intended to order it. I wanted to eat a large serving of buckwheat noodles, so I ordered Chicken Tempura and Itasoba Buckwheat Noodles (medium-size) Set Meal (鶏天板ちゅう). The price was JPY 1,100.

The Itasoba buckwheat noodles is one of serving buckwheat noodles in the inland region of Yamagata Prefecture, and buckwheat noodles are served on a wooden box. The noodles were chewy wide noodles, and were quite good thickness. It was just like Inaka soba (Country style buckwheat noodles). I ate the buckwheat noodles with soba soup which was a slightly sweeter than other soba soup. It was tasty. I ate the Tempura at intervals. Light taste chicken tempura was also delicious. Generally, other customers ordered the Chicken Tempura and Itasoba Buckwheat Noodles Set Meals when I saw their orders. I think that it is the most popular set meal after all.
