Big range of fish cakes from sweet, spicy and savoury. And it stayed fresh overnight too as we bought some to eat in our hotel room the next day and it was still delicious. There is also a souvenir shop inside with a big range...of gifts and other Hokkaido specialities.More

Omg. This store was recommended to us by our guide for sushi making class in Sapporo. So happy he recommended this to us because they have the best fish cakes ever. There also carry lots of souvenirs, some of them specific to Hokkaido.

Very fresh fish cakes with amazing, different fillings. Help yourself to free flow hot tea when you eat-in. You can view their kitchen and watch how they prepare. Many locals bought frozen ones to bring home.

Enjoyed the fish cake before heading to Waraku for sushi. The items sell out fast so make sure you head there before noon to try them all.

We visited the canal and had out lunch in that area. Took a slow walk along Sakamachi in the snow and cold. Took a pitstop here as the kids were freezing. The fish cake was delicious and had a beer while we warmed up for...the second half down the street to LeTAO and Music box museum.More

We walked from Otaru station along canal heading towards Minami-Otaru station, Kamaei is along the way. Great place for rest stop even if you don't buy anything. Their specialties are fish cakes of all kinds, but they also have other stuff. Free hot/cold water/tea and...fish cake samples. Clean toilets, a must stop in Otaru.More

Popular Tourist Spot where for a few dollars you can have a good meal. Otaru’s Stroller’s Bus stops right in front of Kamaei where you can sit down and eat what you have purchased.

I am a fish-cake lover, so whenever I visit Japan, I would look for places the sell fish-cakes. Kamaei is the most famous fish cake place in Otaru, and the fishcake they have is quite delicious, but a bit too sweet to my liking. Nevertheless,...they have very wide selection of fishcakes and the price was quite reasonable. Great place to drop by if you have time.More

This is where Hokkaido’s famous sweet fish cakes “Kamaei Kamaboko” (かま栄) are from. The shopfront is kinda like a mini supermarket. One side is selling fried fish cakes, with many different flavors. The queue is long. I tried 3 types and they were all delicious!...Next to it sells all the refrigerated products, like chilled fish cakes and other food items. Then there is also the souvenir section selling interesting stuff from Hokkaido. Behind the shopfront is the fish cake factory. Great to drop by if you have time.More

The shop is divided into three areas. One part is a cafe with a seating area to order soups, drinks, etc. The main entrance area is where you can purchase a variety of fish cake on display. The "bread loaf" fish cake is a must...try. Menus in English are available. The other part of the shop is a store where you can purchase refrigerated fish cake that are individually packaged and a varity of other food items. The shop name is not displayed in English but it is located before the Venetian museum and after Waraku kaiten sushi.More
