Conventional quantum annealing does not sample all ground states fairly. We demonstrate that fair sampling can be achieved by performing simulated annealing on a quantum annealer. We discuss the problems that occur when implementing this method and propose an alternative way to overcome them. We numerically verify the fair sampling ability of our method in a small-scale toy model.
