The city of Sapporo in Hokkaido is renowned for its high quality food and beer, with one of its signature dishes being their crab. Nagoya’s Sapporo Kani Honke brings those unable to visit the northern city a little taste of Hokkaido. Located in a huge building that can comfortably seat hundreds, it somehow still feels calm and peaceful. The interior is said to be modeled on a “folksy fisherman's house in the Japanese countryside,” and the food is so fresh. It isn’t hard to imagine that it has all been cooked by a motherly neighbor on her tatami-surrounded hearth. The kimono-lad staff are extremely friendly and helpful, which is vital when trying to consume a cumbersome meal such as whole crab. For those who are interested in a less luxurious and expensive seafood experience in Nagoya, the buffet at the Best Western Nagoya would be a cheaper option.
