I've waited 2 hours and it was finally our turn and I was having high expectations since everyone was talking about but it's just normal sushi and slightly fresher . Might as well just go to the market and have sushi there

Their is an automated queing system. Get a ticket at the door. The machine is in Japanese so you may need to ask for help. (they also call the numbers in Japanese, but the machine will show which number they are on if you are unable to follow)The restaurant opens at 11am and will seat up to around no 32... More

One would be expected to wait for approximately 30~45 mins during the peak (meal time) hours. It can be easily found on the 6th floor of Stellar Place, which is right on top of Sapporo Station. Please remember to take a queue number at the front of the restaurant instead of going directly to 'join the visible queue' right in... More

Another very busy restaurant in Sapporo, count around ~40mins of waiting time (there is a ticket based system that allows you to shop around while you wait however). Once inside its a good sushi place, with the option to order anything that is not on the conveying belt. The food felt pretty good but am not much of a sushi... More

Food and service is very good. If you do not see what you like, just mention it to one of the chefs or staff and they will make it for you if available. Salmon sushi is excellent.

There's a wide selection of sushi and they are very fresh. Recommend to sit by the window to see the view of clock tower. The taste is so so comparing to other place in hokkaido. However the service was good here.

Firstly the sushi is very good and quality comparable to top notch North American sushi restaurants. This conveyor belt/kaiten sushi is an interesting experience where you take what you want from the conveyor belt. Other items can be ordered as well. This place is constantly busy, so be prepared for a wait. Value is quite good, especially compared to north... More

Decent sushi offerings but to get the really good specialised sushi you will have to write on a piece of paper and give it to one of the sushi chef. Long lines for both lunch and dinner!
