Wholesome, natural foods and spectacular scenery on the northern farming plain of TokachiA vast plain with the largest farming area in Hokkaido, Tokachi is surrounded by the Hidaka Mountains to the west and the 2000-meter peaks of the Daisetsuzan Volcanic Group to the north. Tokachi’s geography makes it an ideal place to enjoy the scenic wilderness that Hokkaido is famous for. The long summer days at this northerly latitude are excellent for growing crops and raising livestock, and the soft, rich soil is filled with nutrients from volcanic ash. These natural conditions yield milk with high fat content that is excellent for making cheese. Tokachi produces the majority of the natural cheese made in Japan, and people come from all over the country and the world to sample the region’s bounty.
