The cherry blossom timing reaches Hakodate around late April every year. Goryokaku Park is a popular cherry blossom viewing spot where you can enjoy 1600 cherry trees, especially Somei Yoshino. Walk around the park and appreciate cherry blossoms. The flowers are illuminated at night only when they are blooming. They hang lanterns under the cherry trees to illuminate the blossoms. That is called "Hanami Denshoku" there. The pale red sparkle emitted from about 400 lanterns gently illuminates the cherry blossoms.
In this plan, you can enjoy cherry blossoms in Goryokaku Park while enjoying sizzling outdoor BBQ. It is Hokkaido-style that people prepare a stove and a pot to enjoy BBQ at Hanami, a cherry blossom viewing party. The "Hanami Genghis Khan Set" includes 300 grams of prime lamb meat, 5 kinds of vegetables, sauce, dish, chopsticks, paper towel. The full package also includes gas, stove, and a hot pot available for rent. There is no need to prepare ingredients, bring equipment, or clean up. The reception place is behind the Goryokaku Tower. You will find the prime location where the sheets are already spread out under the cherry trees. You are shown to one of the sheets where everything necessary for Genghis Khan BBQ is ready to use. Get one drink and make a toast. Enjoy Genghis Khan BBQ and cherry-blossom viewing in the Hokkaido-style!
How to enjoy Genghis Khan BBQ:
1. Put the Genghis Khan pan on the stove and set the fire
2. Grease the hot pot
3. Spread vegetables out
4. Place the meat
5. When the vegetables and meat are cooked, put them in the sauce and eat!
When you finish eating, get ready to go. You can leave the stove and pan as they are. No need to clean them up. Try the Hakodate-style Hanami with the Genghis Khan BBQ!
