First, get yourself to Enumclaw Washington, then head east on highway 410. Go up the road about 32 miles. You will see a sign to turn off the highway to go up to Crystal Mountain Blvd. Take the small, dirt road to the left side of the road about 500 ft BEFORE Crystal Mountain Blvd. If you enter Mount Rainier National Park, you have gone too far. The cabin is the third one in. It has a sign that says Skal on the front.


In Yamagata City, they use a crane to scoop the soup!!!!
