[Closed Down] Tecchan
Tairyo Izakaya Tecchan (大漁居酒屋 てっちゃん) is a popular izakaya (Japanese style bara tavern) near JRA WINS Racetrack and Susukino in Chuo ward, Sapporo City. Mr. Tetsuo Abe (阿部 鉄男) is an izakaya owner, and the Tecchan is famous for an amazing sashimi boat and the surprising interior decoration. My friend recommended a splendid sashimi boat, and there was an opportunity to held a year-end party with ex-boss and ex-coworker joined the previous company at the same time, so my wish came true, and I decided to reserve the izakaya beforehand. Because the Tecchan is considerable popular, and they prepare a sashimi boat, customers had better reserve it in advance. Unfortunately, They has been closed down since March, 2020. An article before closing is as follows.
I got on an elevator at Kamiya Building (カミヤビル) on that day. When the elevator opened on the 7th floor, I caught sight of the interior decoration, and first I was surprised at the situation. Walls and the ceiling were covered with accessories of the Showa period closely, and I could not help mistaking here for a trash house. I useed to live in Mizonoguchi, Kanagawa prefecture, and it remainded me of a trash house called Sakaeya (さかえや) near Takatsu Station. But the Tecchan was much cleaner than the Sakaeya. I was suprised at the marvelous accessories. The izakaya is not so large, and counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers may enjoy meals.
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
The ex-coworker had already sat at a seat. we met after a long absence, so we waited for ex-boss while chatting with each other. Then 3 servings of Sashimi Boat was served. I was surprised at the large size, and was able to understand a reason that my friend recommended. We asked a waitress to explain about types of the sashimi. She replied us "Types of the sashimi (raw sliced fishes) are raw whales, raw whale bacons, raw jellyfishes, raw sea squirts, raw soft cod roes, raw prawns, rawa sauries, raw porgies, raw scallops, raw tuna and raw squid". The price was JPY 1620 per person.
Because the ex-boss was late, we decided to eat it before he came. The fresh sashimi were tasty! The sliced raw jellyfish was crunchy texture, and raw soft cod roe was creamy taste. All sashimi was delicious, and I did not expect that the sliced raw whale bacon was very good in particular.
Since the sashimi was too much, so we were fully satisfied with only the sashimi boat and appetizing small dishes such as boiled king crab and salted squids served as soon as we sat at the seats. Customers can make a staff grill the rest of the sashimi. I became very full.
By the way, a man sat next to us seemed to run a sushi bar called Kintaro in Cologne city, Germany. We chatted with him, and he showed us photos of his sushi bar. The interior decoration was very stylish, but I was surprised at people photographed with him. I had a vague memory, and he was photographed with Red Hot Chili Peppers and Mr. Atsuto Uchida, a football player. In addition, He seemed to have an opinion of his own to serve sashimi. Thanks for the tasty meals!
