4K: Kelp harvesting in Hokkaido

Our Collection

It's kelp harvesting time in Hokkaido. The cold water and nutrients that flow from the Oyashio current, added by the minerals that runs from its forest, makes Hakkodate's coast the perfect spot for kelp harvesting. Hokkaido produces more than 90 percent of all kombu (a type of kelp) in Japan.
