Ramen at Susukino, Hokkaido, Japan

The first night in Hokkaido, we stayed at Hotel Royal Stay Sapporo which is close to a subway station (i.e. NOT JR) called Susukino.  Susukino is about 2 miles south of the Sapporo JR station.

When we went out for dinner at night time, we saw a long line across the street from the hotel at a ramen restaurant. Then, we decided to line up on the second night. Well, it was like 11 PM, and we were lining up at the 20th place.

Almost everyone there are Japanese. I believe they are not local Hokkaido Japanese since it was during a four days public Japanese holiday. Lining up outside the restaurant is never easy.  We were cold, and hungry. And, the worse part is that you are looking at people inside the restaurant eating hot and delicious ramen. After 20 minutes, we were able to sit inside and wait for another 15 minutes to be seated. Let’s check out the menu below…

Just don’t feel disappointed if you cannot have a chance to have these ramen. I can recommend a great ramen restaurant for you guys which is
