Are there food guided tours in Sapporo?

Norman Norman, Lived in Japan

How about hiring a guide in Sapporo? You can enjoy the Sapporo Central Wholesale Market with your own guide. The private guides are relatively affordable in Japan. So you can contact them before your trip and make a plan. The Crab Market is just unforgettable!

How about Cup Noodle Museum? I bet you can get fun there. If you are in Tokyo, then you can visit in Yokohama. Or if you are in the west, then you can find it in Osaka. This is the experience type of museum, so fun and especially so tasty when you make it your own Cup Noodle!https://www.cupnoodle...

Dear all, I trust all is well wherever you are. Can somebody let me know whether I could use the Narita Express all the way from the Narita Airport to Yurakucho station without changing train at Tokyo Station? Thank you in anticipation.
