Japan's Hokkaido area is known for its amazing seafood. It's said that the cold weather and being surrounded by four different seas are just some of the reasons - but it helps when you have a chef with a good eye, too!

If you're wondering, the four seas are the Pacific Ocean, the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk, and the Tsugaru Strait.

This means that in every season, a large variety of seafood specialties are transported to the Sapporo markets directly from the various ports in Hokkaido. An amazing feature of Sapporo is that you can eat fresh, delicious food at very reasonable prices.

So, let's take a look at these three popular all-you-can-eat restaurants!
