Grand Park Otaru

July 15, 2011 in Japan

was the hotel we stayed in Otaru, also our very generous sponsor!!!

Anyway this post is not funny or witty because i just woke up and had a non-alcohol related hangover wtf. Feel free to insert your own funny puns where you deem necessary thanks.

Anyway back to Otaru!

So after eating the tear-inducing Roast Beef and Angel Brains, we retreated back to our hotel room!

Went down for breakfast buffet!

(And gobbled up tons of Hokkaido whipped butter again). The Angel Brains Chef was there early in the morning!!!! Zomg he worked OT for us then had to wake so early to cook breakfast again T____T

#21

Sashimi and lotsa seafood to make your own Chirashi Don!!! <3

#22

Super light and quite healthy breakfast!! I can eat like that forever!!!!

That’s also one of the reasons why i want to stay in Japan. If you want me to choose between Japanese food forever or Malaysian food forever, i’ll gladly give up char kuey teow and hokkien mee for a healthier life.

After breakfast we’re ready for our day tour in Otaru!!

Guess what! Our hotel rented a taxi to chauffeur us FOR THE WHOLE DAY around town!! Awesome or what!

On the way to Mt Tengu, our first stop! So green so beautiful!

#26

Reached!!

#27

Tengu in Japanese literally means “Sky Dog”, but it’s a totally un-dog-looking statue that’s supposed to give you blessing if you touch its gigantic nose.

#28

Panoramic view from the mountain top

Our taxi driver actually followed us up to the mountain (!) and doubled as our tour guide + photographer (!!!!). This is him pointing out some tourist spot to show us.

#43

This is the restaurant we went! It’s a seafood place!
photo

#44

And these are the food we would be going to eat!!! Excited or not!! Ok probably not you but i was!!! :D
photo

#45

With Xiaxue who was a bit apprehensive about the meals in Otaru the whole time because… guess what?

She doesn’t eat raw food.

AND WE WERE IN HOKKAIDO.

I was feeling abit like FHL because Hokkaido’s seafood is easily one of the best in the worldddddddddddd zomg what is she missing out!!!

photo

#46

Apparently this shop is famous-ish cuz there are notes written by travelers from all over the world stating how awesome the food here is.

photo

#47

Someone made a drawing of the shop owner, who is really hilarious cuz while making the meals he kept trying to get more customers to come in by yelling

“Best seafood in the world!!! I didn’t say that, people who have tasted our food did! If you don’t believe me, come inside and read!”

and

“It’s touchingly delicious!!!”

And this is the face he makes when Xiaxue tried to snap a picture of him

photo

#48

Really look like the drawing right? HAHAHAHAH
photo

#49

He specially made this for Xiaxue, it’s three kinds of boiled crab because she doesn’t take sashimi.

The crab was SO SWEET T_T
photo

#50

This was mine. Looks EXACTLY like the picture in the poster!!!

There was Tarabagani (snow crab), amaebi, ikura, scallop and sea urchin!

Very very very good! Not until teary but still very good! Xiaxue was being adventurous, she said she always was curious how sea urchin tastes like, so she tried and said she liked it!! :D

I was secretly hoping that this trip will convert her to a sashimi lover because sashimi is just…. to good to miss.
