Want to treat yourself? Yakiniku is one of the best options when you want to indulge, and Sapporo is packed with restaurants that will help you do just that. Here we'll introduce three Japanese yakiniku restaurants in Sapporo that serve carefully-selected Wagyu beef, including Hokkaido's famous Japanese black beef.
All of the following restaurants are properly maintained so you won't have to worry about infection, smoke, or poor ventilation.

1. Wagyu Sai: Thick and Juicy Japanese Beef

Wagyu Sai is a yakiniku restaurant in Sapporo located just 2 minutes on foot from Susukino Station (Exit 1) on the Namboku Municipal Subway Line. Wagyu Sai lets you cut and grill your own thick slices of Japanese black beef from Hokkaido. For many, this is the go-to spot for meetings, parties, anniversaries, and more. All seats are private, located in their own rooms away from the entrance.

The signature dish is diced Hokkaido Sagami Japanese Black Beef Sirloin (3,020 yen/100g). The beef is cut into six thick, juicy cubes. Other Hokkaido black beef diced steak dishes you can order are ichibo (top sirloin cap), rump, and special sirloin and tenderloin cuts. Each piece has its own unique goodness, including red meat, lean cuts, and marbled cuts with lots of fat.

First, set the meat in the middle of an iron plate where the heat is strong. When the surface is browned, move the meat to the edge and cook the inside to your liking. The thickness condenses the taste of the meat and the fat for a delicious and authentic flavor. It almost feels as if you're eating teppanyaki rather than yakiniku.

The Special Assortment is a well-balanced plate of ribs, skirt steak, beef tongue, rump, and even offal (5,800 yen, serves 2-3 guests)

There's more than diced steak. The other parts of Hokkaido Japanese black beef are excellent, too! The Sagami Steak Course includes an all-you-can-drink option. Select from the 5,000 yen Tsubaki Course to the more extravagant 10,000 yen Gyoku Course, which includes grilled spiny lobster.

All seating is in private rooms, so you can enjoy your meal peacefully away from other guests. You can also ask for one of the rooms overlooking the night view from the 8th floor. However, those are first-come, first-served, so make reservations to guarantee your spot!

The grills are smokeless, so the air in the rooms circulates in about 5 minutes. Precautions are in place not only against infection but smoke and odor as well!
