- List of Activities
- List of Accommodations
Yuigadoxon (唯我独尊) is a popular long-established curry restraunt in an urban area of Furano city located in the southern direction of Asahikawa city, and means "Only we human beings can have a precious goal" in Buddhist terminology. Mr. Hitoshi Miyata (宮田均), a restraunt owner, founded the curry restraunt in 1973. The curry restraunt is well-known for serving Omelette Curry and Rice, a local speciality dish of the Furano, and 10 restaurants serve it in the Furano, and the Yuigadoxon is one of those restraunts. But their Omelette Curry and Rice is strictly different from Furano Omelette Curry and Rice, so I guess that it is their original Omelette Curry and Rice.
The appearance of the building like a log house reminded me of "From The North Country (北の国から)", a famous Japanese TV Drama Series. The building is not so large, and is like a secret base. All seats are table seats, so I guess that family customers also enjoy meals. But I guess that a long line is expected at lunchtime.
Speaking of the Furano, it as well as Biei is one of the best famous tourist resorts in Hokkaido. There are a few lavernder fields in the Furano, but a lot of tourists visit Kami-furano and Naka-furano.

Hot springs gush out in the Furano, and a day trip onsen can be enjoyed in Furano Onsen and Shima-no-Shita Onsen.
Ninguru Terrace (ニングルテラス) is a popular tourist attraction on the site of New Furano Prince Hotel (新富良野プリンスホテル) in Furano, and is a village for selling original works using natural materials as a motif. 15 log houses and wooden boardwalks are built in a forest. A lot of couples and families attracted by the Ninguru Terrace such as an atmosphere of a hidden village with the warmth of the wood visit here. Very visionary night light-up and a winter scenery have a good reputation. A wedding ceremony can be held here. Admission free. A parking lot is free of chraged. Read More
Shima-no-Shita Onsen is a hot-spring place in Furano city located in the southernern part of Asahikawa city. Only Highland Furano Hotel (ハイランドふらのホテル) is built on a hillside. Some onsen ryokan used to open a business in the old days, but they closed down at present. Except the Highland Furano Hotel, Unfortunately, restraunts, cafes, cafes, souvenir shops and convenience stores are not built. Forest of Lavender (ラベンダーの森) is built as a health resort around the Highland Furano Hotel, and some waking paths are built, and visitors can enjoy forest bathing and birdwatching.

Omelette Curry and Rice
I visited here to avoid a line on lunchtime around 15:00 on a weekday, but a line was still formed. Of course, a parking lot is about full, too. After I lined up for about 10 minutes, I finally shared a table with other cutomers. I read a menu, and found the Omelette Curry and Rice. The Omelette Curry and Rice is a dish poured curry sauce over an omelette on rice. I ordered the Omelette Curry and Rice topped with homemade sausage because the homemade sausage looked tasty. The price was JPY 1,450.
Afer waiting for about 5 minutes, the Omelette Curry and Rice topped with the homemade sausage was served. The curry sauce stewed slowly and carefully with vegetables and 29 types of spices was black, and tasted a little spicy. But it turned into very creamy taste when I ate the omelette with the curry sauce together. It was tasty! In addition, the sausage had a nice texture, too. I should have ordered a large portion of the rice because it was not enough to me. By the way, customers can have another curry sauce freely. A waiter serves it if the customers shout "Ru Ru Ru" familiar words of the From The North Country to the waiter.
