Ikura, Kani, and Uni Donburi

Hokkaido is known for so many food products including ramen and sushi, both of which will be available at eat-in counters so go for lunch or dinner. Our favorite seafood such as uni, kani, and ikura as well as ika (squid) stuffed with rice and simmered in a soy broth (ikameshi). Other things to look for include sweets, such as the Kinotoya cheese tart (photo above), ROYCE chocolate covered potato chips, and Marusei Butter Sandwiches.
