Tsukisup Jingisukan Club

This restaurant serves Hokkaido's famous jingisukan. This restaurant is famous for its terrace seating where you can eat while enjoying the typical Hokkaido scenery. The style of eating is to grill raw mutton meat over a charcoal fire on a shichirin (a seven-ring charcoal grill), allowing you to fully enjoy the flavor of the mutton. The iron pot for Genghis Khan is shaped like a mountain, so that if you grill on top of the mountain, the oil from the meat will naturally fall off, and if you grill vegetables under the mountain, the oil from the mutton will soak into the vegetables. Try it with a special sauce.

Very popular terrace seating!

Terrace seats are very popular but hard to get because you can eat in the nature of Hokkaido in spring, summer, fall, and winter.
The restaurant is located in a magnificent natural setting, so be sure to enjoy the seasonal scenery. Also, the Genghis Khan comes with rice balls as a little surprise.
