You will be spoilt for choice because of the variety. My recommendation is to buy what you can eat (immediately) as it best eaten warm. And if you don't have enough stomach space, it's ok, because you can also get the fishcakes in the Sapporo supermarkets as well.

Ever imagine a plethora of variations of fish cakes in one place? I could not even imagine that fish cake can be so varied in so many different ways and tastes. The store can be considered a cafe slash ice cream parlor slash convenience store slash tourism center. Parking space is abundant. I saw several buses with travel groups flock... More

Hungry for a delicious snack? Try Kamaei Kamaboko(fishcake) factory/restaurant. Stopped by by chance and found this fishcake factory that produces some of the finest tasting ebi(shrimp) kamaboko fresh from the fryer. Eat it while its still hot snd get a rush of shrimp in your mouth.

My country boasts of many fish cake related foods. Here, they have turned it into a delicious enterprise Firstly the variety of more than 10 types freshly made fish cakes plus chilled ones for purchase The breaded ones were fantastic with great flavor and filling The price was also good. A very good snack in between walks in the area

I am normally not a big fan of fish cakes, but I followed the TripAdvisor reviewers to this place. The fish cakes were delicious! They give out free samples for you to try, and I had a hard time deciding on a flavor because they were all very good. Must go!

This stop could be listed under attractions more than restaurant. Behind the counter is a viewing room where you can watch mixing, shaping and steaming of fish cake. We don't have anything similar in the U.S. But buy this at markets when we can for Japanese dishes. The tour has recorded video only in Japanese, and the only item to... More
