Eat Sushi in Sapporo at lower price

You can eat fresh Sushi at lower price in Sapporo than other areas in Japan such as Tokyo or Osaka.If your budget for eating is limited or you have many foods to try in Hokkaido, I recommend to eat Sushi for lunch rather than dinner. Because many Sushi restaurants offer lunch set meal at chaper price than that for dinner, and meal’s volume is not too much, in other words, you would still have some space in your stomach to enjoy desserts in the afternoon following lunch.

Sushi restaurant, “Kiyohira” is one of my recommend to eat Sushi for lunch in the central of Sapporo. It is located at the basement floor of ANA hotel Sapporo just next to Sapporo station for JR and subway. Even though the restaurant offering authentic taste and atmosphere as a traditional Sushi restaurant is located in the one of famous hotel groups in Japan, the average price for lunch at Kiyohira is almost same level as ordinary restaurants in Sapporo.


A seafood bawl I ate last time was JPY 1,260. Lots of fresh seafood such as tuna, squid, salmon, scallop, etc. are on the rice. (There are some other lunch set meals less than JPY 1,500, according to the official website)

For another option to eat Sushi at lower cost, I recommend to visit to restaurants categorized as “海鮮居酒屋”, casual types of seafood restaurants or restaurants operated by fish dealers.
“Sakana Isshin” owned by a company with many years achievement in seafood industry offers fresh and cheaper Sushi as well as Sashimi, grilled fish and even desserts like Hokkaido milk ice cream. It is located in Tokyu department store at very close place to Sapporo station, which is easy to find for tourists. You can find menus through their official website


Its seafood bawl with big prawn on the rice was also around JPY 1,200 (Sorry, I forgot exact price…)
