Fact: Raclette cheese, a Swiss dish created by melting cheese using a special raclette oven and often served on top of potatoes, is starting to become a menu favorite in Japan. Need proof? Just check out the increasing number of shops serving "Heidi's cheese" in the Kanagawa Prefecture. This means more opportunities for you to enjoy raclette cheese in Japan.
