A quick place for ramen if you are at Sapporo Station. Many choices to choose from. Can also shop at the various shops at lower floors when you are there.

Well, we heard that Sapporo is known for its miso ramen, therefore we ordered spicy miso noodles, miso ramen, and three style chashu miso ramen. Well, all were

It so happened that this was the first bowl of ramen for me, at the start of two months touring Japan, and although many more followed elsewhere, nowhere could match the delight of this ramen. When you reach the 10th floor of the Esta Building, which is a structure alongside but not connected to the huge Sapporo railway station which... More

Sapporo has Ramen Alley and New Ramen Alley but this arcade of shops on the tenth floor of the ESTA building was much more convenient to our hotel and we had had a long day sightseeing. The building is adjacent to the Sapporo central railway station and it is easy to identify because it is a JR building and has... More

On the 10th Floor of Esta just beside the JR Station in Sapporo is the Ramen Kyowakoku where you find all the best selling Hokkaido Ramen. This is the place to try all the best ramen in Japan. Price is very reasonable and it is usually crowded. It is similar to the Ramen Stadium in Fukuoka. I enjoyed this place... More

Must visit if you love ramen. Go to Esta 10F via lift in front of information counter and you can choose any shop that you like.

On the 10/F of ESTA, you will get a big surprise. Ramen alley for the ramen lovers. This is the place that makes you wish you had 8 stomachs. One for each shop. I tried 2 in a day and I can say I wanted more.

You will be tempted to try ALL the ramen you see in this place but please stay sane. There is ramen for everyone here so take your pick! Conveniently located at Sapporo station too!

“Sapporo Noodle Kingdom”, which consists of eight famous noodle restaurants, is on the 10th floor of ESTA, above the Sapporo JR train station. We love Japanese noodle soup and this “Sapporo Noodle Kingdom” is the must try place. We randomly picked Kyowakoku place and we were very satisfied. We don’t eat spicy and salty food, so we chose soya sauce... More

You could trudge all over sapporo (which wouldn't be bad at all!), or you could just head over to the 10th floor of ESTA (above the JR train station) and have your choice of 8 awesome awesome ramen restaurants, lovingly recreated to look like an old-school ramen alley. You're totally spoiled for choice, and every single one of them is... More
