Hokkaido Melon & Hokkaido Corn Fair to be held in August
Hokkaido, the melon kingdom, boasts the second largest yield of melons in Japan. Many red-fleshed melons with bright orange are characterized by their strong sweetness and melt-in-your-mouth texture. They are rich in potassium, and the carotene content of the red flesh is outstanding among fruits. It is also effective in preventing summer fatigue, as its sugar content provides an immediate source of energy.
Hokkaido is also the number one producer of corn in Japan, accounting for more than 40% of the national share. Corn is high in insoluble dietary fiber, which regulates the intestinal environment and stimulates intestinal movement. Although the hot weather may reduce your appetite, we are sure that these seasonal fruits and vegetables will whet your appetite.
* Amusement park ticket or hotel stay is required for admission to Rusutsu Resort (The Westin Rusutsu Resort is available without amusement park admission or hotel stay).
