Get a little tipsy with sake, then refresh yourself with fruit juices.
The northernmost sake brewery in Japan is the center of any conversation about regional good drinks. Sparkling apple and pear wine and, a recent addition, spirits made of wheat should not be passed over either. Fresh non-alcoholic ciders, fruit and tomato juices are also popular local products.
