Ramen and Beer Haven of Japan

Everyone has their comfort food or drink. For me it's ramen and beer. 
Ramen gives warmth like a mother's hug and beer will always be a loyal companion. 
My trip to Sapporo led me to ramen and beer haven of Japan... Ramen Kyowakoku ( Sapporo Ramen Republic) and Sapporo Beer Museum. 

SAPPORO RAMEN KYOWAKOKU (Sapporo Ramen Republic)

For ramen lovers this place is heaven on earth. One stop destination where you can taste ramen from top restaurants all over Hokkaido, shop ramen related items and visit a shrine for the ramen god.
It’s conveniently located on the 10th floor of ESTA COMPLEX near JR Sapporo Station.
