Hokkaido is rich for seaweeds. 

Seaweeds contain not only lots of minerals and nutrition but also they are healthy and good for preventing diseases. 

We have been culture of seaweed and used them since long time ago as base of broth, food and sometimes medicines. 

There are many kinds of seaweed and we know how to fully use them. 

I will introduce some of Hokkaido seaweeds today.

I will introduce you one of the unique ramen restaurant in Sapporo.

There are so many schools offering their unique ramen noodles in Japan such as 醤油系 Shoyu-kei ( soy sauce flavored soup school, 味噌系 Miso-kei ( Miso flavored soup school), 豚骨系 Tonkotsu-kei (pork bone soup school) , 塩系 Shio-kei, ( salt flavor based soup school), 家系 Ie-kei ( pork bone and chicken bone mixed soup ) and 二郎系 Jiro-kei ( somewhat unique and new type of heavy fat ramen ) and so on.

二郎系 Jiro-kei is tonkotsu broth with shoyu added, but the broth is more like a thinner (but very rich) pork gravy and in most branches it has a large amount of suspended 脂 Abura ( fat ). 

The noodles are typically very thick and chewy and the pork is a very rough cut, usually from t...

つぶ焼き Tsubu-yaki, grilled whelks are often seen at summer festivals in Hokkadio.

Whelk is a common name that is applied to various kinds of sea snail.

In Japan, whelks are frequently used in Sashimi and Sushi or BBQ. 

They are delicious. 

When we bite them we feel flavor of sea and enjoy the texture. 

They are chewy. 

You can enjoy Tsubu-yaki anywhere in Hokkaido but I will introduced Tsubu-yaki culture in Kushiro city, where grilled whelks are deeply embeded in the lives of local people.
