Busy streets

Pedestrian streets that are covered. With many small shops and restaurants. Some good ramen restaurants are location here. Very busy especially on weekend evenings.

Best place shopping for souvenirs. Spending up to 5,000Yen just show your passport and get discounts. If you're a pre-loved clothes/bags/shoes collector, this is the place ! "Bundle heaven" In case if you're staying at a hostel with a kitchen, FamilyMart for groceries shopping. Surprisingly, one of the Cashier, he can speak Malay very well ! For a halal restaurant,...

The least interesting shopping area in Sapporo. It seems to be popular with some foreign tourists for duty free drugs & cosmetics. Not a place for interesting local shopping or restaurants.

The name says it all. This is a long stretch of shopping street in covered walkway, with souvenir shops, drug stores, restaurants, cafes and some pachinko game arcades. It also links to the underground shopping malls, Pole Town and Aurora Town, which leads to Odori and Sapporo train stations. There are a lot of drug stores along this street selling... More

This is a near 1km long shopping Arcade. Unfortunately, I find it nothing really about shopping except souvenirs shop. There are so many souvenirs shop (mostly tax-free svc for min. spending). Other than that, eatery and convenience store. That's really about it. A 7-story high Don Quijote can also be found here.

If you've been to Dotonburi in Osaka you'll find this place less exciting. Didn't find any shops which was particularly attractive except for a gaming shop which had groups decked out in similar outfits.

This is a huge shopping area that is clearly catered to tourists with all the tax free signs. So come here to get your cosmetics, gifts for friends and family and snacks! Also, you can come here to take sticker pictures and visit an animal cafe where you can have animal encounters (owls, turtles, birds).

One of my favorite place in Sapporo. Huge establishments reminiscent of the shops in Tokyo. In terms of the prices, I'm not sure if there are price differences but fairly reasonable. Same goes with restaurants located here.

The place has changed a lot since I first visited in 2000. It was a real shopping area for locals and tourists, selling cheap and weird goods. Now it's catered towards the bus loads of PRC tourist that descend in the area.
