Sushi Train in Sapporo Station:
When visiting Sapporo, you are bound to stop by Sapporo Station at some point. It is a massive complex filled with shopping centers, theaters and especially delicious restaurants, including sushi! I know sushi or raw fish may be intimidating, to some people, but the high quality seafood of Hokkaido is not something you want to miss during your trip.
Sushi train is the perfect way to get started with eating sushi, as there is a great selection of fishes, sushi and rolls both cooked and raw. There are also specials every month and special dishes for different shops.
There are several sushi train restaurants in Sapporo Station, but today will will focus on “Hokkaido Four Seasons” located on the 10th floor of ESTA, a shopping complex within the station.
“Hokkaido Four Seasons”
Hokkaido Four Seasons is a famous sushi train restaurant in Sapporo best know for its year-round specialty, “Grilled Salmon with Salt and Pepper”, which are loved for its juiciness and tenderness. For sushi beginners, this is a good dish to start with as the surface is scorched with blow-torch.
Visitors can choose to sit at the table, or at the counter where sushi will pass right in front of them of a conveyor belt.
Of course there are much more other options to choose from in the menu. Let’s have a look a their menu! They have different types of sushi at different prices! What’s better is that they also has a English menu for tourists coming here.
