Kaiten-zushi, more commonly known as “conveyor belt sushi”, has been popularized across the world as a distinctly Japanese style of fast-food dining. In Sapporo, there is no shortage of these restaurants, including several branches of Nemuro Hanamaru. It has grown into one of the city’s most popular sushi chains, particularly the branch connected to JR Sapporo Station. At Nemuro Hanamaru you can enjoy a wide range of delicious sushi made with seafood caught from the waters surrounding Hokkaido. The restaurant’s speedy self-service, cheap prices, and ease of access make it a perfect lunch stop. Sushi bar staples like nigiri-style (toppings served on a bed of vinegared rice) salmon, tuna, and tamagoyaki (sweetened egg omelet) are on the menu, along with a variety of shellfish and fresh seasonal catch.
