Motoyawata : Jingisukan in a snow ball’s house

Jingisukan is Hokkaido’s local foods

I didn’t thought that my hometown Chiba have Jingisukan shop except cheap all-you-can-eat shops.
But unexpectedly such a jingisukan restaurant is not far from Motoyawata station.

Jingisukan Yukidaruma Motoyawta branch

Appearance, Yukidaruma Motoyawata branch (Motoyawata)


“Yukidaruma” means him. Snowball. Why some drawings and photos are displayed is this restaurant is run by someone who is former rikishi.

My drink was coke highball (コーラハイボール, 477 yen).
This highball contains much whiskey 😀 It was good.

Otoshi is served if you order something alcoholic drinks (plus 191 yen).
That day’s otoshi was boiled Japanese konjac jelly.

Everything for jingisukan was prepared in advance.

Sauce, chopsticks and so on, Yukidaruma Motoyawata branch (Motoyawata)


Sauce, salt, chopsticks, wet towel, coaster and paper apron to prevent from soiling of our clothes.

I hate paper apron because of its texture, but everyone use it and the staff recommended me so. I did, too reluctantly 🙁

Starting set (スタートセット, 963 yen) contains vegetables and lamb meats.

“Jingisukan” is local foods of especially Hokkaido, part of Nagano and Iwate.
Mutton and lamb yakiniku.
You’ll think this hotpot have strange shape. I thought so, too for the first time 😛
At first, setting vegetables around the grilling plates at the center.

And then, grilling meats 🙂

Meat juice flows and gathers around the grilling plates and vegetables absorbed in the juice ! Awesome !
I think the person who invented this hotpot is great person !

We added lamb-chop (ラムチョップ, 487 yen per one piece).

We had second helping of it 😛 So juicy !
And added lamb meat (追加肉, 778 yen)

We got entirely full.
They prepare all-you-can-eat course, too. But those foods are enough inexpensive.
So, if you don’t want to eat toooo much meats, I don’t recommend all-you-can-eat course because the time is limited.

The head shop is in Nakano and one of the branche is in Ryogoku 🙂
But this shop is popular and there are not much seats, so you’d better take reservation in advance 🙂
Some people couldn’t take seats because it was fully booked.
