Sapporo’s Nijo Market and Curb Market
Hokkaido has become another word for “delicious taste”, and Sapporo is the place where various delicious foods are gathered from all over Hokkaido. The Sapporo Central Wholesale Market, the biggest in Hokkaido, is a pillar of Sapporo’s food culture. The nearby “Sapporo Central Wholesale Market Curb Market”, where general customers may enjoy dining and shopping, is bustling with tourists and Sapporo locals coming to hunt for seafood, vegetables and fruits gathered from various parts of Hokkaido. The Nijo Market in downtown Sapporo is a famous market that was first established in the early Meiji period, and is the place to go if you are eager to experience Hokkaido’s taste of the season. Have a go at the sashimi-topped rice and sushi that make full use of the fresh seafood just arriving in the morning, or have crabs still crawling in water tanks boiled on the spot. We invite you to come and experience the unique taste of the market.
