Hokkaido

Hokkaido is the second largest and northernmost island of Japan. Because Hokkaido has about one-fourth of Japan’s total arable land, Hokkaido is well-known for its highly ranked agricultural products such as dairy, corn, potatoes, wheat, and soybeans. This month’s Bokksu was curated with these high quality agricultural products in mind to take you on a gourmet journey through Hokkaido.
