New Product! Enjoy Winter's Gourmet Delights with the JR Tohoku-South Hokkaido Rail Pass ✩

In South Hokkaido and Tohoku, there's a lot of delicious food to eat in the winter! While the standard gourmet fare of winter is good, I recommend walking around town and trying the local delicacies. With the JR Tohoku-South Hokkaido Rail Pass, it's possible to go around these regions at a reasonable price. In this edition, I will introduce the places you can visit to savor winter's gourmet delights with this Pass!

Hokkaido YOSAKOI Soran Festival

The Hokkaido YOSAKOI Soran Festival is a fusion between Koichi Prefecture’s famous “Yosakoi Festival” and Hokkaido’s traditional folk works, Soran Bushi. The festival is held across 20 venues in Hokkaido’s Sapporo City. Various teams, equipped with wooden clapper instruments called “naruko,” fans, and banners, put on dancing displays. There are paid seats available, but typically every venue’s performances are available to view for free.

Hokkaido Sapporo Beer Museum

Unusual even for Japan, this museum showcases beer. The building, whose red brick is reminiscent of the Meiji era, was built over 120 years ago, and it is registered as part of Hokkaido’s cultural heritage.
