In a prefecture as cold as Hokkaido, it seems as if ramen (Chinese-style wheat noodles) was destined to be a stronghold of flavor that fortifies the people of the land. Historically, Hokkaido ramen has revolved around the big three: Sapporo, Asahikawa, and Hakodate ramen.
Hokkaido, the northernmost island of the Japanese archipelago, is known for its vast expanses of farmland and sumptuous local foods and produce, making Hokkaido food famous around Japan. It is said that the best way to experience a culture is through its food, and boy, does Hokkaido have a lot of it!
Hokkaido is a top destination for avid skiers and snowboarders. The whole prefecture transforms into a beautiful and magical winter wonderland every year.
The sudden surge in international interest in Japanese whiskey may come as a surprise, but it’s the result of many years of hard work and craftsmanship.
Another year is about to end, and we know that it is the season for cozy family gatherings, warm clothes, and heart-warming food – for sure! Nabe, or hotpot, is definitely a must-try dish that is undoubtedly delicious yet easy to make at home for a cold evening.
