    "This store is famous for its ""yakitori bento"" box lunches. ""Yakitori"" means ""grilled pork"" in Donan (Southern Hokkaido) rather than the usual grilled chicken. Customers can choose from five different flavors including soy-based glaze, salt flavor, and miso-based glaze. The bento boxes are both tasty and generously portioned. We strongly recommend giving it a try if you are in Donan."

    We stopped here to grab some yakitori lunch. Unlike Lawson, 7-11 and Family Mart, almost everything is in Japanese. Luckily, there were English instructions for ordering the yakitori, although the...

    Hokkaido Hakodateshi Wakamatsuchou 9-19
    This morning market in Hakodate has a fishing pond with squid in it. The large oval fish tank inside the market is filled with live squid swimming about vigorously. To fish, pay at the shop front and then wait your turn to use the provided fishing pole and catch yourself a squid. One of the most exciting things about the fishing tank is that once caught, the squid will retaliate by shooting out jets of sea water. As the value of squid fluctuates, so too does the price of fishing for squid here. You can have the squid you catch processed right then and there to eat as sashimi.

    This seafood restaurant is dedicated to the budget conscious customer. You wont believe that you can have your favorite seafood donburi for only 1 coin (500 yen). Yes, you read it right! For only...

    This Japanese-style confectionery is about 10 minutes on foot from Minami-Otaru Station. The modern stone shop on Sakaimachi-dori Street in Otaru is also a new tourist attraction. They particularly recommend their Kaitaku Okaki snacks and Fairy Forest baumkuchen cake, created to commemorate the opening of their main shop. Their baumkuchen is made the old-fashioned way, with craftsmen wrapping paper around oak cores and painstakingly baking them one by one. To keep them moist, they're left to mature overnight at a constant temperature. You can observe the bakers making baumkuchen at the store.

    As we visited Otaru during the state of emergency period a lot of shops including Kitakaro had limited fresh baked goods. So we didnt get to taste their famous cream puffs. But the ice cream was the...

Hokkaido Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
