  • Tried the ramen street located on 10F of Sapporo stn too. I preferred this. More authentic and sat in front of ramen chef. 
  • As usual, more inbound. All stores are open in the daytime so would you not go 5:00 PM.

  • Fun experience, and despite other reviews the ramen really is decent here. I think basically it suffers from "over hype" but having all these small decent ramen places in one place is fun. Yes you can probably get better elsewhere. But chill out. It's better than anywhere outside of Japan that's for sure.
  • So yeah, ramen-alley is something you want to try and avoid. There is far better ramen available, well, pretty much anywhere else. That said, it'll be open late, and if you're seriously buzzed and its late at night... The peoples here are very nice though, very *very* nice...
  • Truly the best bowls of ramen I've eaten. On our trip, we planned to visit a new restaurant each meal. But this was so good we had to come back the next night for more.
  • If you are into night life you should go here. lots of pachingko, drinking bars, and "other bars." There is also a ramen alley in this vicinity which you should go and try. I'm not into bars so I had nothing much to do here except to eat. Try to go early though, coz they close early specially when they ran out of brothe
  • The best ramen I have had in Japan so far was at one of these small shops. I recommend the local specialty; white Miso ramen. It is delicious and perfect for warming you up after walking around in the snow.
