The town is about a three-hour drive south of Sapporo,


at first

Because we can’t speak english

I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,

but I would like you to understand

Thank you

Yakumo Town is “just right for the countryside,” with large

supermarkets, home centers, electronics stores, and other

shopping available within a five-minute drive in downtown

Yakumo, and as the central region of the northern region of

southern Hokkaido, the town is compactly developed with

urban functions such as a general hospital and commercial

This business trip was to accompany a hotel chef on a site

visit for an initiative of my other company, YM Logistics Co.

I accompanied the hotel chef on this trip to inspect the site.

In order to include Yakumo Town’s wonderful specialties in

our menu, we asked the mayor and town hall officials to

show us around the various production areas.

We also asked the mayor and town hall officials to show us

around the various production areas.

We arrived in Yakumo Town around 12:00 noon, so we had

a lunch meeting at Harvester Yakumo.

This Harvester Yakumo has a long history, starting as a

production test site for the famous Kentucky Fried Chicken

in Japan.

It is now an independent company called Harvester Yakumo.

Immediately after the meal, we went to the town hall and

had a meeting with the mayor and town hall staff

Thank you all for being so cooperative and wonderful!

I look forward to working with you on future endeavors!!!

After this, we headed to a wagyu beef farm.

Shorthorn cattle are fattened on grass only.

It was quite powerful (^ ^ 😉

Next, we headed to a salmon farm, the main focus of this

Lots of salmon swimming in the huge tank at this fish farm.

I was shooting from 4 to 5 meters away from the surface of

the water.

I apologize for the difficulty in seeing the salmon.

Actually, I was going to put this underwater camera in this

tank to take pictures.

Salmon in the farm were still too small and weak to

photograph underwater

This underwater camera is sold as a full set, please take a

Salmon farmed in the tank mentioned above will be kept in

this tank until next spring.

When they grow to a certain size, they will be transferred to

a fish farm in the ocean

They will be moved to a farm in the ocean to grow.

We also visited a sea farm.

Very clean ocean, clean air, the salmon growing here must

be delicious!

In the end, it is very regrettable but unavoidable that we

could not take a test shot with an underwater camera.

When I go on a business trip somewhere again, I’ll bring a

camera that fits the location.

I’d like to do some previews!

Vintage Shop Japan Inc. & YM Logistics Co.

We will continue to do well with the cooperation of the two
