Particularly recommended is the popular three meat cheese jingisukan, a unique take on this popular Hokkaido comfort food mixed with Korean-style cheese dak-galbi. The dish consists of lamb meat marinated in a special jingisukan sauce together with chicken thigh meat and pork loin marinated in a salty-sweet sauce baked together with tasty vegetables. Diners are encouraged to enjoy the dish by covering each bite in the two varieties of accompanying rich cheese sauces.

    Store and restaurant with local Hokkaido items on National Route 276, Otaki City, Hokkaido. The Kingdom Restaurant offers dishes made from local Otaki district mushrooms such as mushroom miso soup and mushroom tempura. In Kingdom Souvenirs you can find local products like Mentai Name-take (salmon roe with mushrooms) and other mushroom based items that are made only in Hokkaido.

    Great mushroom soup for 108yen. Great to warm up and have a lunch break. It was a stop for the Chuo lake tour.

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.
