Tourists are attracted from all over the country to Hokkaido’s rich variety of fresh fish and processed seafood. This delicious bounty includes crab, scallops, sea urchins, salmon roe, salmon, herring, flounder, cod, arabesque greenlings, squid, octopus, shrimp, abalone, surf clams and kelp.
Harvested from the northern seas, these seafood products have exquisite taste and flavor, and are rated among the best of their type. The crab in particular is exceptional. Depending on the season and location, you can enjoy Queen crab, Horsehair crab, Red king crab or Blue king crab. When in season, they are heavy for their size and rich in flavor whether boiled in brine or prepared as Sashimi.
The sea urchins feed on kelp and the Sashimi is so delicious, you must try it at least once!
You will not find such rich and mellow sweetness anywhere but in Hokkaido. We recommend visiting one of the markets where you can eat fresh food on the spot.
There are also restaurants that provide reasonably priced samples of unique seafood, such as Donburi-meshi (as shown in the picture above). Donburi-meshi is basically – a bowl of rice topped with a generous amount of raw sea urchins, salmon roe, scallops, prawns & more!
