They recommend their Nuka Hokke, Okhostk Atka mackerel made with just rice-bran and salt; it's sun-dried and smoked with a special method. Since its flavor is very particular, there's a mild version for the uninitiated, as well as a stronger one.

Some tourists like this traditional Reibun Island preserved food so much that they buy it as a gift or even for themselves to take home.

    留萌駅から徒歩3,4分ほど。お漬物のお店です。 はじめ交差点の角にあるお花屋さんの「田中青果」に入ったのですが、話を聞くと経営は同じだけどお漬物は隣にある小規模な店舗で取り扱っているとのこと。 大根漬け等の漬物他に小瓶に入ったピクルスもおいてありました。 大根漬けはいろいろ種類があり、ピクルスはちょっとおしゃれな感じ。試食も出来るのでお気に入りがあればお土産にいいかも。

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.
