Yubari King Melon (夕張メロン)

I love Yubari King melon. Although it is cold in Nov. in Hokkaido, I ate Yubari King melon soft ice cream today! Look at this↓ It is bigger than Mt. Showashinzan! Hahaha!!

The Yubari King melon is a cantaloupe grown in Yubari, Hokkaido. It is very delicious, but very expensive! At an auction in 2008, the best Yubari King melon once fetched 2.5 million yen!!!! Wow! Wow! Wow! If you buy the normal Yumari King melon at supermarkets, it is usually about 800 to 1,000 yen, through!

You want to try it?
Actually there are a lot of kinds of Yubari King melon souvenirs at reasonable prices in Hokkaido.
How about Yubari King melon KitKat? Yummy x 2!!

Hi-chew is popular especially among kids!

Pocky also has Yubari King melon version!

This jelly named PURE JELLY is one of the most marketable gifts in Hokkaid♪ 

The best season for the melon is from May to July. When you come to Hokkaido, please try Yubari King melons or Yubari King melon sweets♪

If you want to enjoy Yubari melons as many as possible, how about an "all-you-can-eat Yubari melon buffet" at HOTEL SHUPARO?
