Summer Illumination and Genghis Khan BBQ, Hokkaido’s Soul Food

The annual summer illumination started in downtown Abashiri. The colorful lights brighten up Abashiri River after sunset.  The event in this small town Abashiri is not elaborate, but just right to feel relaxed and to enjoy your beer at the riverside.

At Manma, the casual restaurant at the site, all-you-can-eat Genghis Khan (mutton BBQ) and drinks are offered during the event period.  It has a Mongolian name, but has got nothing to do with Mongolian food😊 Rather, it’s been the soul food of Hokkaido people for many years!  If you’re wondering what-to-eat, try it!
