Ramen Yokocho Sapporo Ramen

ラーメン横丁

Sapporo is known for its ramen (Chinese egg noodles). The whole city is scattered with ramen joints, but the most famous place to try ramen is in Ramen Yokocho - an alleyway packed with steaming, crowded, noodle restaurants.

Sapporo Ramen

Ramen stock comes in three main flavors: miso (fermented soybean paste), shio (salt) and shoyu (soy sauce). Hokkaido ramen specializes in the miso variety. There are spicy kara-kuchi ramen options too.

Ramen Yokocho is in the entertainment district of Susukino not far from the Susukino metro station on the Namboku Line.

Sapporo Ramen

Everyone has their favorite ramen hole-in-the-wall. On a recent trip we were recommended Shirakaba Sanso. Shirakaba Sanso has a number of shops in Sapporo, one in Chitose and another in Aqua City, Odaiba, Tokyo.
