Lamb is an uncommon meat on Japanese menus but not in Sapporo, home of the jingisukan, or “Genghis Khan” barbecue. This delicious feast of flame-grilled meat and vegetables gets its name from the convex table grill on which it’s cooked, said to resemble the Mongolian-warrior’s helmet. All of the restaurants at the Sapporo Bier Garten next to the Sapporo Beer Museum offer the dish, as does the rival beer garden Kirin Biiru-en (キリンビール園). You’ll be provided with a plastic bib to protect against dribbles from the dipping sauce, but it’s still best to dress down, since the smell of sizzled mutton lingers long after you’ve left. The big beer gardens, packed with tourists, have a boisterous Germanic quality; for a more intimate jingisukan experience try Daruma.
