THE BEST IN THE WORLD
Locally produced items from the Niseko and Kutchan area are recognised throughout Japan and right across Asia. The prefecture of Hokkaido support extensive farming due to its large size, relatively small population and favorable soil and climate, producing almost ten times as much wheat as any other prefecture. Locals say the extreme climate and difference in temperature between day and night also increase the flavour profile and sweetness in fruit and vegetables. Fresh products are available throughout Niseko and Kutchan.
