Ishikari has an Onsen (hot spring facility) called "Banya no Yu," which faces the Japan Sea. Banya means "guard house" in Japanese. Ishikari used to be a prosperous fishery region that had guard houses. The old-fashioned building of Baynya no Yu is modeled after those historical structures.

Normally, rolled sushi is made by placing ingredients inside rice and rolling it. Deco sushi (Decoration Rolled Sushi) is an elaborately arranged style of rolled sushi. Its artistic beauty will satisfy both your taste in art and plate!!

Most Japanese people love soba ( buckwheat noodles). Hokkaido is famous for producing high quality buckwheat. Ishikari produces its own soba noodles made with automated machinery, but you can experience soba-making with your own hands in this special class.
