Food trail in Hokkaido 2010/12/3 10:55

i need some advise.

I want to organize a food trail in Hokkaido. I understand there are many delicious food, farm food like potaotoes, sweet corn, etc but anything on fruits like strawberry? are these food all year round? I would like to also visit the cheese, dairy factory while i am there.

which is a better time to go to Hokkaido to see sunflowers?

I am torn between going in winter or in Summer.

Your advise is greatly appreciated.

Beer! 2011/3/24 19:04
Not sure if you have thought about this but there is alo some good beer to be had in Hokkaido - Obviously there is Sapporo where you can go on a tour and visit the bar and try many types, but also there is a beer hall where you try the the 'Gengis Khan' style BBQ - where you can cook lamb and vegetables on a hot plate at your table. At the brewery you can eat and drink as much as you like for a set price.

In Abashiri to the north their is a small independant brewery that does a selection of strangely coloured beers, the brewery also has a yakiniku restuarant.

I would definately recommend trying the crab and dairy in Hokkaido too!
