Sapporo Factory, Sapporo
(3.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Sapporo Factory a part of your Sapporo vacation plans using our Sapporo vacation planner.

  • Beautiful grounds. Short, free museum. Lots of options to eat and drink, we just wanted beers after but felt uncomfortable only drinking at Lilac biergarden Walkable from Sapporo station but public bus takes you straight there
  • It's better than my expectation. Very spicy and with high glass roof which allows sunshine into the ground floor. And beautiful garden inside this big building. And not much tourists which make us feel so relaxing.
  • Very recommended.. cheap on food and beer..
  • A historic building on the outside, modern shops are inside, mostly sport shops, nice and quiet.
  • Can be mistaken for Sapporo Beer Factory, but this one is different. It's a collection of shops and restaurant.
