Starting today through January 31 is Shinjuku Odakyu’s Hokkaido Food Fair. The event is on the 11th floor of Odakyu department store. It is broken up into two weeks so the event will close at 5 p.m. on the 24th and the 31st, otherwise until 8 p.m. all days.
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.
