    Hokkaido Shiraoi-gun Shiraoicho Ishiyama 109-20
    This restaurant is located inside Uemura Ranch, southwest of Shiraoi Interchange, down the road beneath the expressway. It is easily recognizable by the signs placed in the vicinity. The ranch is somewhat unusual in Hokkaido, as it produces Japanese Black beef from the breeding stage, and the biggest attraction of Shiraoi beef is the consistent high-quality of the meat, which was given the highest award by the Shiraoi beef association in 2013. The Shiraoi beef luxury course buffet is available only on Saturdays and Sundays, and a reservation is required. The Shiraoi beef lunch course is a limited 10-course meal which is available on weekdays, and also requires a reservation. The King of Flames Cheese Hamburg set is another of the restaurant's most recommended menu items.

    On the whole, wed give our experience here 3.5 stars. We made the trip to the farm for lunch yesterday from Noboribetsu after reading about their cheeseburger in a blog. What we discovered was...

    Hokkaido Sapporo-shi Kita-ku Kita 11 Nishi 8
    A Western-style cuisine restaurant located on the campus of Hokkaido University. A high class restaurant like something you might find in a hotel instead of a university cafeteria, here customers can enjoy an elegant lunch.

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.
