This 1930s beer hall, part of the Sapporo Lion chain, is a tourist attraction in itself. The tiled and wood-panelled interior looks as if it’s been transplanted from Bavaria, and a menu laden with sausages adds to the effect. Friday night sessions have been known to descend into mass karaoke demonstrations. There is also a cheap and cheerful restaurant upstairs serving both Japanese and Western dishes.
