While you can find exceptionally fresh fish pretty much anywhere in Japan, Hokkaido is particularly known for its high quality seafood. It’s also known for a dish called kaisendon, a seafood bowl that includes rice topped with sashimi and other ingredients. You can sample several varieties of this dish at Uedagumi, which only serves fish from Shibetsu, a city in Hokkaido that’s known for its excellent salmon, scallops, trout and shellfish. You’re in good hands with regards to the sushi chef too – Katsuharu Takano earned his stripes at Ginza Kyubey, often considered one of Tokyo’s top sushi restaurants.
