    Hokkaido Hakodateshi Wakamatsuchou 9-15 inside bowl alley
    This izakaya (Japanese-style pub) is in the lively Donburi Yokocho Market (Hakodate morning market) just a two-minute walk away from Hakodate Station. Inside the shop live squid swim in tanks and their signature dish of live squid on rice, using the squid caught off the coast of Hakodate, is a huge hit. It’s a gem of a dish which is often highlighted by the mainstream media. The squid has a transparent body, and a sweet and crunchy texture, and whether it’s on a bed of rice or in your mouth it’s constantly moving about. You can taste the seasonal delights while you embrace the historic Hakodate air in the calm atmosphere of the restaurant.

  • Tokachi Buta Don Ippin
    Gourmet / Alcohol
    Hokkaido Obihiroshi Nishinijuichijouminami 3-5
    Tokachi Butadon Ippin is a specialist Buta Don restaurant located on Shinroku Street, around 15 minutes’ drive from Obihiro Station. The restaurant’s pork portions are substantial but tender, with a slightly sweet flavor to the fat. Carefully selected Japanese pork tenderloin (backstrap) is grilled using only the best Bincho-tan charcoal (made from Ubame oak wood); to avoid spoiling the natural flavors of the ingredients, the specially-made sauce is prepared without heating it. Diners can specify how much rice and how much pork they want, as well as the size of the pork portions and the amount of sauce to be added. Besides the Obihiro flagship store, there are five other Tokachi Butadon Ippin branches in Sapporo City offering the same outstanding charcoal grill taste.
  • Buta Don Hanatokachi
    Gourmet / Alcohol
    Hokkaido Obihiroshi Odoriminami 12-2-4 Kawarami Building 1F
    Buta Don Hanatokachi is a specialist Buta Don (Pork Bowl) restaurant with a distinctive yellow sign outside, located around seven minutes’ walk from Obihiro Station. It was originally an ordinary Japanese restaurant, but when Buta Don was added to the menu the restaurant rapidly acquired a word-of-mouth reputation as having high-quality, reasonably-priced Buta Don, and it became very popular. The loin roll meat used to make the restaurant’s Buta Don is marbled pork, which can be obtained from only around 3% of Hokkaido pigs. To satisfy customers who want to be able to eat both marbled pork and boned rib, Buta Don Hanatokachi introduced “Half-boned Buta Don,” which has become a famous dish. Please note that on weekends and public holidays Buta Don Hanatokachi is very busy, and it may be necessary to queue for a table.

Hokkaido Main Areas


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.
