Salmon Steak @ Boyotei Restaurant

If red meat is not your thing, perhaps a plate of salmon steak might do the trick? The best time to visit Hokkaido for a salmon lover is during autumn, when the fishes return from the ocean and into Toyohira River for the breeding season. This is the time when salmon is in abundance.
