The shop is divided into three areas. One part is a cafe with a seating area to order soups, drinks, etc. The main entrance area is where you can purchase a variety of fish cake on display. The "bread loaf" fish cake is a must try. Menus in English are available. The other part of the shop is a store... More

Despite all the fantastic reviews on how great the fish cake tasted, I find that the fish cakes are not as good as the ones u have back in my home country. In fact, even if taking my own country's fishcake out and making comparison with local fishcake, I have definitely tasted better ones elsewhere! The ones I had at... More

Something unique to try, the famous sweet fish cake! Inexpensive and delicious. Costs 194 yen for a piece. They have other varieties as well and an open factory glass space for observation.

This place is just next to Waraku sushi so you can pop over for a quick bite if you're hungry after getting a ticket at Waraku.

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!
