Get out of Sapporo to drive around nearby wheat-growing towns

Get out of Sapporo to drive around nearby wheat-growing towns

Hokkaido is a major producer of wheat. If you go on a drive away from Sapporo, you will be treated to the beautiful sight of wheat fields in vibrant colors of green or dazzling gold. The sight of fields steeped in the colors of spring wheat (planted in the spring), and autumn wheat (wheat planted in autumn that spends the winter under the snow until spring) are one of those unique scenes only found in Hokkaido. Visitors are encouraged to get out of Sapporo and go for a wheat-inspired drive to enjoy great scenery and a delicious meal.

In Sapporo there is a growing number of brewpubs(*) with their own attached brewery, as well as taprooms that showcase craft beers from both Japan and abroad, adding an extra dimension to Sapporo beer tourism. Learn to love craft beer by mingling with the brewer, or sample different flavors with a tasting set. Which craft beer will you try today?

Dining is one of the highlights of sightseeing in Sapporo.

Tidbits on how best to enjoy delicious Genghis Khan (Mongolian barbecue) in Sapporo

Tidbits on how best to enjoy delicious Genghis Khan (Mongolian barbecue) in Sapporo

Genghis Khan (Mongolian barbecue) is a Hokkaido local dish that consists of grilling mutton and vegetables on a special grill that has a raised mound in the center. Not only do Sapporoites enjoy drinking beer and eating Genghis Khan in restaurants, but they also enjoy barbecuing it outdoors while camping or viewing the cherry blossoms. Also, many households own a dedicated grill just for making their own Mongolian barbecue at home. It is regarded as the most-loved soul food of the city by residents, as you can even find disposable grills for Mongolian barbecue in Sapporo’s hardware stores, while some restaurants serve the cuisine on a grill shaped like the prefecture of Hokkaido.
The types of meat used include lamb, which is soft and doesn’t have a gamey taste, and mutton, which is the meat from an older sheep with a unique and gamey taste. Choose from seasoned meat marinated in sauce, or unseasoned meat that you dip into a sauce after cooking. The flavor of the sauce and the way the meat is cut varies by restaurant and supplier. A Mongolian barbecue can be capped off by cooking udon or ramen noodles in the leftover juices, or adding tea to the sauce and drinking it. Each restaurant has their own unique way of presenting the meal, making every outing fun and interesting. Meat is typically imported from New Zealand or Australia, but some restaurants serve rare Suffolk sheep raised locally in Hokkaido. Explore the many restaurants to find your favorite seasoning and way of eating Genghis Khan.

For spring gourmet eating, come to Sapporo♪ The season when delicious produce comes alive!

Spring in Hokkaido is the time to eat edible wild plants from the mountains and asparagus from the fields, and seasonal seafood caught after the drift ice recedes. A Hokkaido-style spring is not complete without eating jingisukan while watching the cherry blossoms, once the cherry trees bloom at the beginning of May after the rest of Honshu to the south. We invite you, too, to savor these spring foods that signal the end of the long winter.
