We went as a couple and ordered the 6,500 yen set menu. The first plated dish was GREAT!! LOVED IT, but everything else was not that good after that. The wine though, was SUPERB. Ordered two bottles in total. We were seated on the side that's facing away from the city, which was a pity. Would have been a great... More

It was nice being in Sky J in May to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The service, location are great. Food are nice too. The view from the restaurant was terrific overseeing the whole Sapporo city. We enjoyed a wonderful night there.

Celebrated birthday dinner for my wife there and we loved it! There are some plans for celebrations or special occasions etc that you can choose from their website (it's all in Japanese though). Price was very reasonable and food was great. They use seasonal ingredients in Hokkaido. Staffs were very friendly and attentive. Make a reservation if you want a... More

You can eat the dish which was made with the fresh vegetables and meat harvested in Hokkaido at this restaurant. You can also look at the beautiful scenery of Sapporo from a window at this restaurant. It's better to visit after you make a reservation.

The restaurant situates on 35/F of JR Nikko Hotel and you can have really nice views on Sapporo during your eating time. However in order to get a good seat near the window, you better be early for breakfast, say at 6.30 am or have advance reservation with the restaurant staff for lunch or dinner. The restaurant offers various types... More
