Most travellers have placed popular Japanese cities such as Tokyo and Kyoto on their bucket list, but we reckon that Hokkaido—an enchanting island located on the northernmost of Japan—is too worthy of being listed on one of the must-visit destinations in Japan.
Most holidaymakers head to Hokkaido for winter sports, but the food is worth a special trip too. And you might actually already be somewhat familiar with Hokkaido’s food without realising it.
Let’s start with Singaporeans’ obsession with Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tarts. Additionally, we are also pretty damn sure you have had a Sapporo draught beer or a Miso Ramen. Well, here are 8 Types Of Hokkaido Food that you must try if you haven’t.
Here’s to all with an undying love and passion for alcohol, in particular, beer.
This addictive alcoholic beverage complements so many cuisines and it never fails to perk you up after a long and tiring day at work. It is also great for nights out with the lads (or the girls) because of its lower alcoholic content and relatively affordable pricing (compared to hard liquor).
One type of beer that we will never be able to get enough of is craft beer. Aside from the personalised touch to the drink, there is an emphasis on traditional brewing methods which contributes towards better flavours and standard of the beer, as opposed to generic ones that you can pull off the shelf at the supermarket.
Here are 20 Craft Beer Places In Singapore For Nights Out With The Lads.

When in Hiroshima, one quintessential dish to try is Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki. And where better to have okonomiyaki than at Okonomimura—an okonomiyaki village with 24 different okonomiyaki eateries.
