A flavor you need to try before leaving
Pork from Tokachi is sweetly delicious. Butadon comprises plenty of pork that has been grilled in a sweet and salty tare sauce atop rice. It is famous throughout Japan as a local dish beloved by the residents of Obihiro. This wonderful pork that famers have poured their dedication and ideas into is worth savoring, produced from pigs raised consuming plenty of potatoes and water from Japan’s most beautiful clear stream. These pigs were raised while being free to graze in the grandeur of nature.
