I felt like I did nothing but shop in Sapporo. Mainly because I was there with my mom and aunts, who happily would prefer shopping over anything else. I’ll link my shopping haul just below if you are interested otherwise just keep scrolling to see what are the must eat when you are in Sapporo itself
I’ll be completely frank, the only 2 things I saw on my trip that wasn’t the malls were these 2 buildings. The tokeidai and the Sapporo TV Tower
Sapporo TV Tower|さっぽろテレビ塔
Nijo Market | 二条市场
Being famous for their seafood, there is no way you can miss out the fish market. Here you can find the freshest seafood in town, of course, it wasn’t as big as the Hakodate fish market, but kid you not, my prawn was still moving when he served it and I just couldn’t eat it alive so I waited till it died before consuming it
爱吃海鲜的人，绝对不能错错这个地方了。你不爱吃海鲜你也得来看一看他们的二条市场。虽然不比Hakodate 的来的大，但是海鲜还是不错的。就想说新鲜嘛，来吃个虾sashimi, 结果虾呈上来的时候
Honestly even the restaurant next to the fish market has the best crab porridge ever
I generally love Ikura, so this is a total win dish for me
Out of all the (normal)strawberries I’ve had, this is my fav strawberry brand!
Don’t forget to try their Okonomiyaki!
千万别忘了吃 okonomiyaki 呀，自己动手煮一煮的感觉也不错～
Soup Curry Lavi | 咖喱
Then this was a surprise to me, never would I have imagine they serve really good curry here. And I’m not talking about Japanese curry, but curry curry, like the ones we usually have with coconut milk in it. This was a little on the spicier side but I absolutely loved it.
Convenient store finds | 便利商店
This I found from the convenient store, only available in Hokkaido so I def wasn’t gonna miss out on it. Tasted pretty good actually
Then you def gotta try their local brand calpis
To be completely honest, I don’t think I’ve actually manage to do Sapporo justice, but I know how I’m like, I’m generally one to go for scenic places than the city much more. For those who feel the same and are planning your trip to Hokkaido, why not give Niseko a thought this summer?
