Look! Eat! And Enjoy! Driving by car around Asahikawa!

The snow has now fully melted and Hokkaido is gradually getting warmer! It’s the perfect chance to go for a drive. This time, we will introduce you to some of our favourite places around Asahikawa to go when the weather gets warmer.


~Higashi Asahikawa~

The Nanyakanya House Farm

Last year, around the end of May, our writer went strawberry picking at the Nanyakanya Farm !

For 1000 yen, you can pick all the big strawberries you want for 40 minutes!
We couldn't stop our hands from picking the sweet and tasty strawberries and before we knew it, we had eaten about 3 packs...!!

You can also take the strawberries home as a souvenir for an extra charge!
This may also be a great chance to make homemade parfait or sweets with the strawberries you picked up!

There are no details yet about when the strawberry-picking event will be held this year, but last year you had to make a reservation to participate, so if it's going to be held again this year, don't forget to call and make a reservation!

Suzuki Kamaboko - Ekimae Branch

If you get a little hungry after your stroll on the beach, Suzuki Kamaboko is the place to go for freshly fried kamaboko!

From Wikipedia:
Kamaboko is a type of cured surimi, a processed seafood product common in Japanese cuisine.
It is made by forming various pureed deboned white fish with either natural or man-made additives and flavorings into distinctive loaves, which are then steamed until fully cooked and firm.

Source: A friend

The freshly fried kamaboko are served hot and available in various flavours such as scallop, octopus, shrimp and vegetable.
It’s great as a snack, when you get a bit hungry. But of course, you can even take some home to eat them later with your family. If you happen to visit Rumoi, be sure to stop by!
