I am a fish-cake lover, so whenever I visit Japan, I would look for places the sell fish-cakes. Kamaei is the most famous fish cake place in Otaru, and the fishcake they have is quite delicious, but a bit too sweet to my liking.
Nevertheless, they have very wide selection of fishcakes and the price was quite reasonable.
Great place to drop by if you have time.

The original fish cake tastes a but sweet. I also tried the one with mayonnaise, this one taste better than the original one. They have green tea and oolong tea free flow.

This is where Hokkaido’s famous sweet fish cakes “Kamaei Kamaboko” (かま栄) are from. The shopfront is kinda like a mini supermarket. One side is selling fried fish cakes, with many different flavors. The queue is long. I tried 3 types and they were all delicious! Next to it sells all the refrigerated products, like chilled fish cakes and other food items. Then there is also the souvenir section selling interesting stuff from Hokkaido. Behind the shopfront is the fish cake factory. Great to drop by if you have time.

The shop is divided into three areas. One part is a cafe with a seating area to order soups, drinks, etc. The main entrance area is where you can purchase a variety of fish cake on display. The "bread loaf" fish cake is a must try. Menus in English are available. The other part of the shop is a store where you can purchase refrigerated fish cake that are individually packaged and a varity of other food items. The shop name is not displayed in English but it is located before the Venetian museum and after Waraku kaiten sushi.
