Sorry for the dramatic title.
I'm going to Hokkaido for 10 days in the middle of Aug. I'm really excited to experience its culinary bounty. And having lived in Kyoto for a little over a year now, I'm especially excited to finally get my hands on some decent dairy.
So the question is; Can anyone recommend any meccas of milk, capitals of cultured curds?
I'm pretty much determined to stay out of the big cities and stick to towns and the countryside but I can be swayed. Also, if you know of any other foodie treasure troves that you simply cant keep to yourself, I would delight in hearing about them.
