    Hokkaido Akkeshi-gun Hamanakacho Chanai Nishi 8-sen 51
    "This shop is directly run by Otomo Farm, located in Hamanaka Town, a region with a climate and topography particularly perfect for dairy, even in Hokkaido. Otomo is so particular about dairy they work from the soil up, based on the concepts of ""Healthy starts with healthy cows, healthy cows start with healthy grazing, and healthy grazing starts with healthy soil,"" and use their milk to make cheese, yoghurt, soft-serve ice cream and pizza. Their mark of pride is a caciocavallo cheese, locally known as zuccarlo, which brings the flavor of fresh milk to the utmost limits. Slicing it into circles and browning it in a frypan for a Cheese Steak, is a habit forming treat."

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.
