Hokkaido Food!!

Updated 3 Feb 2008: Shabu shabu! :D

I have taken most of the photos where I had set breakfast, lunch or dinner for the Hokkaido 8day tour. In general, if you wish to eat a full meal (for a guy at least), you'll need to prepare at least 500 yen to 1000 yen average. I average around 700-800 yen for an average meal. Luckily I only had 4 meals where I had to pay myself. :p

Note that in general, Japanese seems to like pork and beef. I rarely see anything with chicken. :p

Feeling hungry?? Well, after looking at these photos, you might be. :D

Yummy lunch where we also had steamed crab.

Shop at Ramen street. Ate Wanton Ramen for about 800 yen, and fried dumpling for about 400 yen.

Shabu shabu! Look at the pork and beef. :)

Set Breakfast. :)

Set Lunch. The Udon was originally in the basket. You can add chilli powder into the "steamboat". The covered box on the left contains rice and scallop.

Set Dinner... The rice is brown fried rice with scallop.

Seafood lunch set. The hairy crab is in the pot. :)

The hairy crab is out of the pot. :)

Set Lunch. The pork is on top, and all the vegetables are below it. Just take all the vegetables and push it on top of the pork. The pork will cook better in this way. You're suppose to take the pork, dip it into the egg, and eat it. Japanese way. :)

Set Dinner. :)

Set Breakfast. The bowl in front is porridge. :)

This is a half eaten dinner from Akihabara. Indian food. Cost about a 1000 yen. Very filling. Look at the Naan. It comes with a salad which was already finished. :)

food. Cost about 700 yen. The pancake is suppose to be Korean pancake. This lunch however, is more japanese than korean, taste wise. :)

It tastes delicious too. One thing that I always like about Japan tours is the food. :)

hey... the food looks good... since yours is a tour package, how much did you change in total throughout the trip - as in expenses? hahaz... cos i will be going in this coming dec and was wondering how much should i change>.<- was surfing to know more about the cost and saw your blog entry.

It depends on your tour and what's included in your meals.

If you're not very picky about food, or food is in the low priority, a meal cost about 1,000 yen.

You have to take into account the tips you have to give after the tour. That you have to ask your tour agency.

You have to look at your free time too, because that might be the time you'll be taking the train or taxi to somewhere to shop. If I remember correctly train rides are relatively cheap. You need to know Japanese though as English announcements are almost non-existent. Taxi rides for about 15mins already cost about 1000 yen. Train rides are cheaper, maybe average at around 200 to 300 yen.

The rest would be shopping. I think I spent close to $800 there in total.
