Coffee and Sandwich Shop Saera (珈琲とサンドイッチの店さえら) is a popular coffee shop founded in 1975 in Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and is near Sapporo TV Tower. Mr. Shin Tamura (田村 伸) is a coffee shop owner. Especially, their sandwich is famous. The Saera means "This and that" in French. The coffee shop is also well-known for forming a line at lunchtime, and I saw a long line several times, so I turned my head.
The cafe is not so large, but it has an atmosphere such as a good cafe. Counter seats and table seats are provided. I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday. As was expected, a line was not formed. However, the coffee shop was crowded with visitors. About 80 % of the visitors were women, and a lot of ladies' magazine were provided so that a woman could relax.
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More
I sat at a vacant table seat, and read a menu, and I was suprised at an abundant sandwich menu. I guessed that about 90 types of the sandwiches were wrote on the menu. Noted products of this coffee shop are Fruit Sandwich (フルーツサンド) and King Crab Sandwich (タラバガニサンド), but the King Crab Sandwich was sold out until lunchtime. Therefore I ordered a sandwich set with a dish of Chiffon, a dish of the Fruit Sandwich and a glass of an Iced Coffee. The price was JPY 680.
About 5 minutes later, the sandwich set was served. I ate the Fruit Sandwich immediately, and it was tasty! The fruits such as strawberry or mandarin orange were sandwiched between white breads, and this was sweets rather than the sandwich, and I was surprised at its taste. As for the Chiffon, it was not too sweet for me, and I liked it. While I ate it, visitors came one after another. The Saera is too popular.
Because the sandwich was brought, I ordered Smoked Salmon Sandwich (スモークサーモンサンド) and Roasted Pork Fillet with Green Onion Sandwich (ねぎチャーシューサンド) on another day. The price was JPY 630. I ate it at Odori Park at once. Whether doves and crows understand those taste, they gathered from all quarters. While I was disturbed by them, I savored the sandwiches.

By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons.
