In the far north of the Japanese archipelago, a 90-minute flight from the neon lights of Tokyo, lies the spacious, lush island of Hokkaido. The prefecture’s capital, Sapporo, has one of the country’s best food scenes thanks to the abundance of high-quality ingredients.
Sapporo has access to excellent seafood, and the area’s fresh air, pristine mountain water and crisp climate cultivate produce both flavourful and fresh. It helps that the city is beautiful, but the trip up north is worth it for the food alone.
From miso ramen and milk to soup curry and corn, when you next find yourself in Sapporo, these are the ten dishes you have to try.
