If you’re one to get up before the sun, check out Sapporo’s Central Wholesale Market, which gets going before 6am. Featuring a seafood market (with tuna auction!), restaurants, and with guided tours available, the Central Wholesale Market is a worthwhile addition to your early-morning itinerary.
Note that you’ll need to book in advance if you want a guided tour.
