Hokkaido Food Festival at Ikebukuro Tobu

Running now through Tuesday, September 27th at Ikebukuro Tobu is a big Hokkaido Food Festival. My favorite food to pick up here is always the amazing bento, both seafood based but also including some wagyu. I am always a fan of the seafood from Sato Suisan, like the bento layered with uni, ikura, and crab legs (for only 1,575 JPY).

Hokkaido, also famous for its milk and sweets, you’ll find a large selection of sweets. I like the puddings, fresh melon, and chocolate-dipped potato chips from Royce. And, of course, a selection of wine and sake.

    Usually there are people from the wineries and sake kura doing free sampling. It’s good to taste before you buy. Have fun!
