This restaurant is on the 35th floor of the Hotel Nikko and offers fantastic views of the city. It is very clean and modern. The food is buffet style and mostly Asian with a good selection. The food is good but not fantastic though.

This nice restaurant is located near jr station! The videos quite nice, even at the counter! The food is good but unimpressive! Some of the disses were cold! But, overall, it was a nice experience!

I can't understand how this place got the no 1 ranking... The food was disappointing and we were also seated away from the window... I think the whole point of visiting this place was only for the view. Furthermore, the whole restaurant was dimly lit..I supposed they were trying to create a romantic atmosphere but it totally made my group... More

Right on top of Nikko Hotel and with a great view and good food. Do not miss it. We tried it for both breakfast and dinner and the quality was consistent. Staff have a good grip of Japanese!!

Bring your camera. On 35th floor (Buffet with both western and Japanese choices). Sky J (right side of building) has the South (city, TV Tower and frozen river) and the West views (mountains towards Niseko, Hokkaido University grounds and west railway). New Chitose airport is south and comes into Sapporo South East. A window table at breakfast is like a... More

We wandered up to the 35th floor of the J Tower in Sapporo which is located on top of Sapporo train station and found the Sky J restaurant and our first impression was- wow! - what amazing views of the city and mountains. Being winter, it was covered in snow and looked magical, especially when it started to snow. We... More

This is a very sophisticated cocktail bar/restaurant at the top of the JR tower in Sapporo.We were going to stay for dinner but when we looked at the menu and saw that the steaks were 80 or 90 grams at circa 5000yen we declined.As Australians we usually eat more than 80 grams of meat at a meal! Nevertheless we enjoyed... More

Food is average and not bad... But the views of the Icy Mountains, the blue bay and the white City during winter is just way too awesome! Me and My kid loved the MISO soup though! :D

Cocktails with a view!! Visited on a Monday night with clear views of the city. Up near the top of the JR building is a superb bar serving reasonable and delicious cocktails! 1000yen-1200yen I recommend the Singapore sling. They have a wide array of whiskey and other options. Well worth a visit!
