Hokkaido : Best Seafood in Japan

While you are planning for visiting the Yuki Matsuri in Sapporo, all your Japanese friends talk wonders about the tabearuki 食べ歩き or stuff which you eat while your walking. There are too many chances to get something to munch while watching the shows & snow statues.

Street-food is often great, probably much better than everything else you can find in most restaurants of the surrounding area. It's cheap, freshly fished and prepared with love and little add-on. Crab, scallops, lamb, milk. You name it, they got it.

However, there is a single issue with the outdoor dining. This is February, near the Polar Circle.

Trust me, after a day walking at -10C you feel for anything involving a heated indoor setting. Andreas' Birthday was also our last day in the North. So we had to leave, through the major door (as we say in Spain).

Here's our recommendation : Go fresh, save a bit and get the best of the Earth and the Sea.

Sashimi (sea urchin,abalone, scallops, tuna, toro & other white fishes)

Hairy Crab (nearly 70€) is better shared and enjoyed sparingly, as caviar of the Northern Sea. If your father is not from Galicia (like mine) you may not know this but PLEASE EAT THE HEAD! IT'S THE BEST OF IT ALL!

Excellent Scallops, with also excellent Japanese mushrooms.

Fruit + sparklers = Happy Birthday!
