"What/Where to Eat" in Sapporo

Sapporo has a lot of delicious food, and it may be difficult to decide what to eat during your short stay. Popular restaurants can be quite crowded depending on the time of day, and you should schedule a long wait if you want to eat at a popular restaurant. * Note: Ramen shops do not take reservations.

Since this website is for people who want to go to sporting events, we have selected several restaurants where even one person can casually enjoy a meal except a French one:). If you are going to the ballgame at Sapporo Dome, there are so many great stadium food selections too! 


There are many ramen shops in Sapporo. You may have to wait in line at a well-known shop. Many ramen shops don't accept credit cards, so please be sure to bring cash with you. If you are busy on your itinerary, you can also enjoy the taste of ramen from famous shops at the food court in New Chitose Airport.
