Lonely Planet review for Kani-honke
The frigid seas surrounding Hokkaidō are extremely bountiful and yield some of the tastiest crustaceans on the planet. There is no better place to dine on all manner of exotic crab than at the famous Kani-honke, which serves up elaborate kaiseki ryōri (Japanese cuisine following strict rules of etiquette) centred on these juicy little critters. Seasonal set courses are priced according to the size and rarity of the crab, so simply choose depending on how much you want to spend. Don't miss the opportunity to sample the tarabagani (red king crab), which is considered to be the most expensive yet most delicious decapod known to humankind.
