Sapporo Sushi To Write Home About: 'Tanabe'


Tokyo-style 'edomae' sushi meets Hokkaido-style 'ezomae' sushi at 'Tanabe,' one of Sapporo's top sushi restaurants. Chef Watanabe was awarded 3 Michelin Stars in 2012 and continues to serve the same incredibly delicious sushi today. This is definitely one sushi restaurant you can't miss in Sapporo.

Why Go?

Only a handful of restaurants in Sapporo have earned the esteemed privilege of 3 Michelin Stars. One such restaurant is Sushi Tanabe, which was awarded 3 Michelin Stars in 2012. The shop has since changed locations and wasn't included in the latest edition of the Hokkaido guide, but the sushi is still as delicious as ever. Apart from the incredible food, the beautiful interior of the restaurant and outstanding service are everything that you would hope from a Michelin 3-star restaurant. It truly would be worth traveling to Hokkaido even if the only thing you did was eat here.
Despite its reputation, Tanabe is surprisingly reasonable, and even offers a nigiri-only course that is offered for around ¥10,000! This restaurant should definitely be on your list if you have time to make a reservation before your trip.


Despite its reputation, the prices are much lower than other sushi restaurants of comparable quality. The Omakase Nigiri course is just over ¥10,000, and the more elaborate omakase courses that include sashimi and other small dishes are priced at ¥13,800 and ¥16,800.

Reservations / Access

This is one of the most highly-regarded sushi restaurants in Sapporo, and as such a reservation is needed if you want to get a seat. If you're planning on eating here, it would be best to make a reservation at least a month in advance.

Tanabe is located in a very accessible location just 5 minutes from Sapporo Station
I live in west Tokyo and spend most of my time thinking about food or going bouldering.
