Lonely Planet review
Buy a bowl of rice and select your own sashimi toppings, gawk at the fresh delicacies or sit down at a shop in Ni-jō, one of Hokkaidō's best fish markets. Sea urchin and crab are favourites; as is Hokkaidō's version of 'Mother and Child' (oyakodon), a bowl of rice topped with salmon and roe.

The market is just over the Sōsei-gawa at the eastern end of the Tanuki-kōji shopping arcade.
