Took a stroll down Higashitonden Dori (street). This was a north-south street in the Yamahana district that ran from Minami 6jo near Susukino in the north to Ishiyama Street via Fukuzumi-Soen Street at the end of 30jo in the south.
Today's starting point was Minami 24jo's "Meatshop Miyazaki". Couldn't expect friendliness, but could get delicious meats at cheap prices. Bought some here the other day.
The Yamahana area was founded in 1876 in the Hokkaido pioneer period as the second village after Kotoni. The village area was from west 8 to 13 chome, and from south 8 to 23jo. 1,114 samurai volunteers settled here with their families from the Tohoku and Date, Hokkaido, in 120 houses each in East and West Tonden villages.

On Minami 22jo Street, there was Higashitonden Dori Station of the Sapporo streetcar line. There was an announcement on the tram saying "Meat Miyazaki gets off here," which gave a local feel.
Cafe "Ametsuchi". Seemed a sister store of "35stock", a popular Japanese cafe in Azabu, Kita-ku.
"Hokake Sushi" in Minami 17jo. A famous sushi restaurant along Minami 16jo. Seemed famous for its dashi salmon roe, and love to stop by next time.
"Menya 169" in Minami 16jo. Listed in the Michelin Guide Hokkaido Edition 2017. Visited many times in the summer. The niboshi (dried sardines) soup ramen was especially delicious. It was MSG free so didn't feel too guilty.
"Kiyonoya", a soba noodle restaurant in Minami 12-jo. Sapporo had many restaurants that served delicious soba noodles.
Across the street from Kiyonoya was "The Yaoya (grocery store)". They served fresh and delicious vegetables at cheap prices. The other day bought a lot of eggplants, zucchini, mushrooms, etc. for moussaka. This was a store could rely on.
"Yogenkyo", a Chinese restaurant in Minami 12jo. It was located on the first floor of the Sapporo Overseas Chinese Hall along Minami 12jo Street. Cheap and delicious.
"Enikaita Mochi" in Minami 11jo. It seemed a sister store of "Majisand", a fruit sandwich shop on Tanukikoji Street, and "Gelateria Gelabo", a gelato shop in Fukuzumi. It just opened last month.
"Sandria", a sandwich shop in Minami 8jo, specialized in sandwiches and opened 24 hours a day. There was a line out the door today, too.
"Wine Shop Ito" in Minami 8jo. It was said well known nationwide for its selection of Burgundy wines. Didn't have chance to visit often, but when did, got a sense of discovery, and it was a wonderland that wine lovers could enjoy for a long time.
"Ebi Soba Ichigen" in Minami 7jo. This was the main shop of the shrimp ramen restaurants in Tokyo and Asia. There was also a line here. Higashitonden Dori came to an end.
