With its noble, five-star hot springs resort hotel image, the Spring City Resort has almost become the new landmark of Bei Tou's hot springs area. Recently, under the management of Chairwoman Amy Ho, the in-house Chikurintei restaurant, famous for its delicate Japanese style Kaiseki cuisine, has taken on a whole new image. Kaiseki dishes here are prepared using seasonal ingredients, with new ideas from the head chef and Amy Ho's persistence in her ideas of healthy living. While you enjoy the excellent food, you can also take in the elegant surroundings. Since we are now in the midst of the Japanese Persimmon harvest season, cold dishes include sweet persimmons with sesame-flavored miso. Specially chosen big, ripe orange persimmons are filled with seafood, mushrooms, green and red peppers and seasoned with sesame-flavor miso. The sight of this dish is sensational; the flavor is yet another surprise for the taste buds. Their Taraba Crab Hot Pot is also another supreme offering, because Chikurintei uses fresh Taraba crab flown in from the Okhotsk sea. The crab meat is sweet and fresh, which the common, frozen crab meat cannot compete with. Spring City Resort offers you a sweet romantic one night stay with two amazing meals as you enjoy the wonderful hot springs. --By Josie Wu, translated by Cara Steenstra
