Eating in Sapporo 2014/12/13 04:59
Wondering what good/inexpensive kaitenzushi places folks may recommend in or around JR Sapporo (or Odori area?)

As for ramen, I'm already looking at these places in the neighboring cities, which I plan to visit as well.

Asahikawa: Baikoken
Otaru: Tokaiya

Cheers!

Several years ago, a friend of mine living in Sapporo took me to a Kaitenzushi restaurant in JR Sapporo station. It was Nemuro Hanamaru JR Stellar Place. I searched it and found that it gets good user reviews.

Since Hanamaru is very popular, you may have to queue for a while. To avoid this, you might better go just before the opening (11:00), or before the dinner time (4:00-5:00 maybe).

After dinner, my friend took me to a nice place :).

Recent spécialité of Sapporo is "soup curry".

Otaru's spécialité is fried chicken.

Wow, thanks frog! :) I saw the mention on Japan Guide about "even the restroom" at T38, but didn't know it was that cool ;)

I also didn't know about Otaru and their chicken. Because I have limited time, do you think I should have that instead of their ramen? I realized that I should have made for three full days in Hokkaido instead of two. So I have to take things out of my schedule :P

Well, very difficult question. I thought Otaru is not the place for ramen, but in Tabelog, there are 100 ramen restaurants in Otaru. If you like ramen, then you should go for it. Fried chicken is universal :) while ramen is specialité of Japan. But finally, it depends on your preference.

I realized that I should have made for three full days in Hokkaido instead of two.

Yes, you should have noticed that :). Enjoy your trip in Hokkaido!

For sure on preference :) I may be ramen'd out (is it even possible? :) so fried chicken may do, too! Kind regards.
