Sapporo Factory, Sapporo

3.3
#3 of 40 in Shopping in Sapporo
Centered around a historical brewery, Sapporo Factory provides customers with a broad shopping experience inside some compelling surroundings. Across the complex's six buildings, you'll find tax-free retail with big-brand names such as Adidas and The North Face, supermarkets, and pharmacies, as well as souvenir shops peddling some of Hokkaido's most coveted exports. Sit out under the huge, glass-roofed atrium and indulge in some Hokkaido ramen. On top of the shopping, there's a little history to be absorbed within the center's antiquated Renga-kan (red-brick building): the location of the first brewery in the country, today it's home to a microbrewery and pub, where you can sample an authentic Meiji-period beer.

  • A bit away from the Centre of town, so parking is relatively cheap set (first hour free of charge, since every 30 minutes 100 yen) and buy 2,000 yen over 3 hours free, so I use often.

  • In complex consists of several buildings, from the shopping diet, activities, movies and enjoy all you can be. Especially shops of the outdoor series No.2 had considerably around the answers. It is sandwiched between two buildings a large glass greenhouse area was very inviting. Also while you're eating. Play a bit with the separate gyms in the corridor, I went back.

  • It is a shopping mall that is only less than 10 minuets of taxi or 20 minutes of walking away from Sapporo station. It has a historical beer brewing building there as a landmark. Quite a number of fashion and sport brand are located in the shopping centre. If you feel tired from shopping then you can find a variety of restaurants and cafes on the ground level with a good view of the stairs with flowers.
  • When the weather is gloomy on week-end day, rain or snow storm, Sapporo Factory is one of the best places to get entertainment, shopping, dining, taking your partner or family to a good movie, or have fun in the Namco game center. Parking is very convenient also. It is free for the first hour. If you spend 2000 yen in any shop of Sapporo Factory you get 3 more free parking hours beside that one free. But one minus: at Sapporo United Cinemas Friday night commercials before the evening movies are just too long. Can take up to even 30 minutes. Last night I made a written complaint to the theater management " I did not pay expensive ticket fee to be fed with overwhelming commercials, but to enjoy a movie."
  • Good range of shops and goods. Most brands here hold a wider range than most highstreet retail shops. Decent range of dining options at the basement level as well.
  • Not particularly big but there is a 100 yen shop and supermarket which is convenient for shopping when we do not have a lot of time. The 100 yen shop has optical shop where u can get glasses within an hour at very reasonable price.
  • I like this extremely tidy and clean place. During my two days trio to Sapporo; I couldn't resist myself not to go to this lovely place.
