This is a buffet style restaurant in the JR tower with excellent view over Sapporo and very good food. We ate way too much because the food was so tasty. The place is extremely popular with locals, so try and book in advance. Friendly ladies in the tourist information service at the Sapporo station will be glad to help with... More

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

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
