Hokkaido in summer is undoubtedly so much about the exquisite produce that makes its way from the farm and onto the plates of Niseko's many restaurants.
Executive Chef and Owner of An Dining at Ki Niseko, Shinichi Maeda has crafted an especially authentic Hokkaido menu for summer with the Special Ainu Lunch Set featuring Ainu-inspired food. The set is created using traditional techniques as used by Hokkaido's indigenous people, as well as modern techniques and ingredients.
The set includes "Ohaw", organic rice mixed with milet and beans and pickled fuki. A soup-like dish, Ohaw has lots of ingredients which are similar to Japanese hot pot, or "Nabe". To Ainu people Ohaw was a staple food, as they had limited rice and grains.
