The street packed with snow after an a late evening snow fall. We walked down an icy path to an old machiya house closed in at the end of the alley. There we sat down and enjoyed some senbei. As you can see, they are baked over a charcoal with metal diffusers.
While being prepared they were brushed with a shoju and mirin and some with sesame. There are many variations and this night we had a good chance to be all alone in a small corner in Sapporo to enjoy some homemade senbei.
