Speaking of the Naganuma, mongolian mutton barbecue such as Naganuma Genghis Khan (長沼ジンギスカン), Kanehiro Genghis Khan (かねひろジンギスカン) and Sato Genghis Khan (さとうジンギスカン) are famous. Tasty restaurants in the Naganuma, Hokuhokuan (ほくほく庵), Handemade Soba Kakitsubata (手打ち蕎麦 杜若), Aichu Land (あいチュらんど), Iwaki (いわき), Ice-no-Ie (あいすの家) and Harvest (ハーベスト) are popular in particular. I ate foods at the Aichu Land, and it was tasty.

Aichu Land

Aichu Land (あいチュらんど) is a sweet shop in Naganuma located in the southeastern part of Sapporo and is relatively near Naganuma Onsen (長沼温泉). They sell soft serve ice creams, parfaits, shakes and crepes, so it is kwnon as a customer always visited shop. When I visited here around 14:30 on weekdays, a lot of vehicles parked in front of the building. Almost customers bought vanilla soft serve ice creams. Therefore, I bought a vanilla soft serve ice cream, too. The regular size was JPY 300. A shop clerk served the vanilla soft serve ice cream in less than 3 minutes. It was large! I guessed its height was about 13 cm. It was good value for the price. In addition, the taste was not too sweet but very rich milk, and it was just taste of Hokkaido. It was very tasty! I feel like I understand the reason that the customers always visit the shop. Article is here

The hot springs are strong sodium chloride spring, and are clear and light green and have salty taste and no smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 20.12 g/kg, and are very rich. Because the hot springs are considerably salty, it seems to be effective for warm body. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. A restroom and free hair dryers are installed at a dressing room. Visitors can eat a soft serve ice cream at a free resting place. A shop clerk gave me a large portion of the soft serve ice cream. Thank you!
