Hokkaido (Sapporo, Hakodate, Noboribetsu) in October. Tokyo/Kyoto suggestions welcome as well


#1

Starting to plan some meals for an early October visit - lots already to choose from in Tokyo/Kyoto - but little I have little to go on for my stops in Hokkaido.

Thanks,
Bob

Are you going to rent a car and drive in Hokkaido? What kind of food you are looking for? Jingisukan? Soup curry? French? Tempura? Seafood?


#3

Pretty much anything that’s good.
Assuming hokkaido’s primarily famous for seafood I imagine that is the focus but sure lamb/mutton bbq, some Waygu, yakitori


#4

At this point no plans to rent and drive but we could


#5

Three most famous foods in Hokkaido are Jingisukan, Soup Curry and Seafood. Some recommendations:
Soup Curry: Ichimonjikariten, Rojirakarisamurai
Seafood: Ohiso at Nijo Market (closed on Wednesday)
Others:
Izakaya: Q, Yururiya
Tempura: Tempura Araki (Mantis Shrimp tempura is very good)
French: Moliere (very good value, open for lunch)

Yes. Never been to Hakodate.
