1. Snow crab

Seafood is a primary source of nourishment for Tottori, a prefecture surrounded by the ocean. Of which, snow crab (to me) is the most unique dish. Unlike in other markets, crabs here are frozen inshore as soon as they are alive, which shortens the shipping time. Thus, the crabs are not kept frozen for so long which remains the fresh and sweet taste of the meat.

Only 2,500 yen for a set like this guys ^^

2. Tottori's Beef

As a fan of beef visiting Japan, I immediately looked for a beef restaurant to satisfy my cravings. Tottori beef was one of the 3 best beef in Wagyu Olympics, said a staff of the restaurant after I finished the meal. No wonder why I didn’t leave a piece ^^

How tasty it wassssss ^.^

3. Trying Sansai at Mitakien

Sansai is an eating experience commonly found in Japanese countryside restaurants where fish, chickens, and pigs graze naturally. Since the materials are caught and prepared only when the customers arrive at the restaurant, the taste of them is awesome. Located deep in the woods, Mitakien restaurant brought a feeling of delight as the customers could enjoy fresh and delicious food while listening to the sound of a gurgling stream and singing birds. Especially in the russet leave season, it is indescribably beautiful.

The restaurant deep into the forest. This is a must-try point!

4. Mochi Hotpot

Before coming here, I only knew Mochi cake. Thus, when I saw Mochi Hotpot, I had to try it right away. The best mochi hotpot was served in a restaurant located on the red-roof and white-wall warehouse. 12 colors represented 12 layers of the traditional Japanese Kimono, the mochi slides were then eaten one-by-one just as putting on a Kimono.

5. Pear

Japanese fruits belonged to my must-eat list when coming here. Tottori is the largest pear producing prefecture in the country which even exports pears to other provinces. Don’t forget to visit the pear farm and pick those delicious fruits by yourself (remember to keep your stomach empty as the pears are so large that only one could make me full)

6. Milk and dairy products

Surrounded by mountains and sea, Tottori is indeed much favored by Mother Nature. On Daisen mountain, dairy cows grazing freely in the cool fresh air produce the best-tasting milk. Ah, I love ice creams there the most, don't forget to try them.

Happy farm ^^
