  • Every time I travel to Japan, I minutes to go to all over the city to eat the latest sashimi two market range is more detailed, but if you want to buy Hokkaido's most famous crab with fruit, me to have a few choice! The great dining restaurant is not bad, it is worth eating!

  • But I think if anything buy seafood at the Sapporo Nijo fish market is famous or local people will not go first. Tourism is a customer-friendly.

  • It’s a great place to get decent seafood donburi in downtown Sapporo. Price is reasonable with variety of selections (maybe too many selections to pick? joke). Don’t worry about the language barrier. I noticed restaurants here equipped with pictured menu and even miniature samples. So come walk around and pick one restaurant to enjoy a great feast of seafood.
  • If you are familiar with the famous market in Tokyo and expecting something similar you may be disappointed. Nijo is on a much smaller scale however it is still worth checking out if you are staying near the area or have a love of fresh seafood. There are many options for eating and prices seemed very reasonable! If you are just browsing/sightseeing you can see everything in 45 minutes to an hour.
  • If you wish to take some pictures, I would recommend you to go there.. But to actually buy seafood; i would advise not to because if you don't know what you're buying they will rip you off. It is expensive esp the king crabs. They mark it up alot. Please be smart and buy them at the airport frozen and ready to be brought home with dry ice and Styrofoam boxes. You may want to try and eat the the restaurant. Avoid the stall at the corner right at the traffic lights. The stall is the one that speaks English well. That is the stall you have to be careful. Always bargain with them.. Don't let them take advantage. I ordered a king crab. Just one king leg for 20USD. It is not worth it.
  • Lots of seafood and fruit on sale here. Some monster crabs on display too. Some stalls have heaters to keep you warm while you browse on a cold day.
  • its very commercial market all seafood are extremely expensive than other places! you will end up paying more or double for the actual value here! not worth it
