Asahikawa (旭川) that about 340,000 people live is the 2nd largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and has flourished as the center of the North Hokkaido area. Woodworks have been prosperous since the old days, and furniture is famous. Because water is clear, a liquor such as sake of Otokoyama (男山) and Godo Shusei (合同酒精) are famous, too. Popular tourist attractions such as Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園) and Biei (美瑛) are around the Asahikawa, so a lot of tourists use tourist bases in the North Hokkaido. As for a climate, the Asahikawa is located in Kamikawa Basin, the largest basin in the Hokkaido, so it is hot that temperature rises to 30 degrees C in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to -25 degrees C in a winter, and it snow very hard, too.

Swiss Roll Cake
I heard that the Q'LL was very popular with swiss roll cake lovers, and I visited here. About 15-20 types of swiss roll cakes were displayed in a shoecase. I asked a store manager about store's recommendation, so She replied me "Strawberry Swiss Roll Cake (苺ロール) is sold well". The price was JPY 210 per one. I bought the cake to go, and decided to eat it near a park immediately. Very soft sponge cake had a fluffy texture, and fresh cream was not too sweet. It was Tasty! Thanks for the tasty swiss roll cake!
