Kisui: Michelin-Starred Kappo Cuisine in Sapporo You've Got to Try!


Hokkaido is known throughout Japan as the best place to get the very freshest ingredients, be they vegetables, meat, or fish. Japanese traditional cooking (sometimes called 'kappo') is the very best way to prepare fresh Japanese ingredients and bring out their flavors. One of the top Kappo restaurants in Hokkaido is called Kisui, which is located in Sapporo.

Feel free to follow favy!

Why Go?

If you've never experienced a full-blown kappo washoku (Japanese cooking) meal, you've got to do so at least once while in Japan. It's a feast for all of the senses, from the beautiful arrangements of the dishes to the wonderful fragrances of the ingredients to the nuanced and delightful flavors that surprise and delight your palate.

Kisui is one of the very best restaurants to enjoy a traditional kappo meal in Sapporo. The restaurant was awarded a Michelin Star back in 2017 and continues to offer fantastic dining experiences to people seeking a special meal. The small restaurant consists of nothing more than a 8-seat counter surrounding the kitchen, and guests are treated to an omakase course that features a changing menu based on the season. Definitely give this place a try if you're looking for a top-notch, traditional Japanese restaurant in Sapporo.


All meals are an omakase course (leaving everything up to the chef). There are 3 courses to choose from, which range in price from around ¥10,000 to ¥18,000, depending on how fancy you want to get. The restaurant also serves excellent sake, which will add a bit more to the bill if you choose to indulge.

Reservations / Access

Kisui is a well-regarded Michelin-starred restaurant with limited seating space, so a reservation is absolutely required if you plan to visit. Better to do so as far in advance as possible, to make sure that you get a seat!

The restaurant is located in Sapporo, just a block away from Hosui Susukino Station, or 3 blocks from Susukino Station.
I live in west Tokyo and spend most of my time thinking about food or going bouldering.
