If you like anime related stuffs, head to Animate. They have multiple floors filled with anime related products! Just looking at cute figures is a fun time for me :)I heard many people like to shop at DONKI store. There is also a famous maid cafe called "@home cafe" in the building of DONKI.

Best Ramen in Hokkaido

Mari Takahashi Mari Takahashi, Living in Japan

I have tried "oyster ramen" in Kushiro and it was amazing. I lost the picture so I cannot show you, but there were about 10 or 15 pieces of oyster as toppings! The soup was simple and the color was clear. You can see the pictures at this review site. https://tabelog.com/en/hokkaido/A0112/A011201/...
