We visited Gotsubo during the evening after our wonderful trip in Sapporo. The restaurant just started their business with few people were queuing at the side door.

Without hesitation, we immediately join the queue and wait for our turn. The owners were busy preparing the food in front of customers. You can feel the heat with oyster smell in the air. Soon, there was our turn to order the food.
