Here's how you can savour the gastro gems of Hokkaido without leaving town
The start of a new year means new travelling plans. What about Hokkaido, home to Japan's freshest seafood? Situated at the northernmost island, locals and tourists are able to tuck into premium produce such as kegani (horse hair crab), hotate (scallops) and ika (squids). However, you don't have to fly all the way to Japan to enjoy these delicacies.
Explore the wonders of seafood haven Hokkaido with executive chef Shinichi Nakatake's seasonal menus, the Sapporo ($200/person) and Hakodate($180/person) at Keyaki.
