If you obtained a copy of Sapporo city map from the tourist office and trying to nagviate your way to Ramen Alley, be aware - where the word "Ramen Alley" is written is not the actual location, there is a tiny line point to the actual location. We spend almost an hour trying to find out where is the Ramen Alley - It is call Ramen Yokocho in Japaness.

The Golden Drinking Rule!!
If you're out having a few drinks when in Japan, be very careful about mixing sake with western-style spirits, eg cognac or whiskey; the mix of the two can be pretty lethal - Dangerously so! Sake, followed by beer seems to be fine - depending on the amount partaken of course! Just avoid spirits after sake...
Please watch out for tout !
Please be careful. If you are a man, may be you will experience tout which is like a persistent saleman.
If you follow him and go to his bar, you will have to pay too expensive payment.
Which is called in Japanese 'PONBIKI!.
