We all know that the best way to get to know a city is through its food. And a practical approach is key.

So, you’ll join one of our local Sapporo hosts to feast your way around the city together, getting to know its unique culinary culture and probably finding your new favourite dish along the way.

From Hokkaido’s regional miso ramen (always yummier with a plate of gyoza on the side) to treats which may surprise you like soft serve ice-cream and Hokkaido cheese, you’ll discover how, what and where the locals eat.

Slurp soup curry (it’s good manners, don’t worry), a dish that was born here, try kaisen don, a bowl of fresh, raw seafood on a bed of fluffy white rice and even set free your inner chef (we know you’ve got one) as you grill your own meat on a convex skillet at a classic Jingisukan BBQ restaurant - this is the ultimate soul food!

It goes without saying that you’ll try some of Sapporo’s famous beer too, or even indulge in a sake - it cleanses the palette, you know?

You might just be crawling back to your accommodation after all of that food!

  • Enjoy 3 hours with your host as you taste your way through the incredible culinary culture of Sapporo

  • Get what you want out of your experience - try fresh farmland ingredients and delightful flavours as you sample some of Sapporo’s classic dishes

  • Your experience, your pace - let your host create an experience ideal for your tastes whether spicy, sweet, savoury or all three

  • Hear about the origin of many of the dishes that you might try and get the insider scoop on where to enjoy them

  • Cook your own meat at Jingisukan BBQ - named after Ghengis Khan’s rumoured way of grilling lamb in a helmet!

  • Try a feast of 6-8 dishes, all at the best place to try them - your host knows where to get the best of each

This experience will be personalized to you!

Sapporo with Robin

Had a great day with Robin, my wife and kids enjoyed his company and his ability to show us around the agreed sites. Highly recommend Robin for families visiting the area. He communicated great and the whole experience from booking to the days activities were spot on. Will definitely see him again on our return

Half day private guided walking tour of Sapporo

Robinn asked our preference ofvthe places to see and actually followed our suggestions. Was glad to have explored the city using their public transport. Would have been better if Robinn shared info and facts about the places we visted though. But appreciated that he brought us to this amazing soup curry resto-Garaku! Got hooked to soup curry!
