In Hokkaido, you can enjoy a wide variety of fresh seafood at reasonable prices, as well as luxury foods such as sea urchin, shrimp, and crab. Processed foods made from squid, octopus, salmon roe, and codfish, as well as dried and seasoned foods that are full of the flavor of the ingredients are also attractive.

Genghis Khan

Genghis Khan is a well-known soul food of Hokkaido. There are many theories about its origin, but it is said to have been invented in the early Showa period (1926-1989) for Japanese people who were not accustomed to eating mutton, based on the Chinese dish "Khao Yang Loh" (roasted mutton). There are two main ways to eat it: grilling raw mutton and dipping it in sauce, or grilling seasoned mutton that has been dipped in a special sauce.
In Hokkaido, Genghis Khan is often served at home along with a special Genghis Khan pot throughout the year, and people often enjoy outdoor Genghis Khan parties such as cherry blossom viewing and barbecues.
