I don't know why, Japanese people eat mandarin orange in winter. I got mandarin orange from Ms.Saimu:) (tourist information staff)
Talking of Japanese winter, Japanese people like to eat mandarin with family at ※Kotatsu.
※Kotatsu...Table with an electric heater attached to the underside. This table has Futon (Japanese blanket) so, when you come in the Kotatsu, you will feel warm and comfortable.

Each six restaurants have four same kinds of sushi and other four sushi will be respective features. (Tuna, abalone, sea urchin and so on.)
Every sushi restaurant is located on Skaimachi street. (It takes about 20 minutes on foot from Otaru station.)
