  • If you're looking for a drug store in Sapporo, go to the Beaver Lane, and the most famous of the few cosmetics shops can be found in the Beaver Lane, most of them are ten to 11 points of the door, and after dinner again not late. Remember that most of the cosmetics shops have a different discount, the money before the question.

  • Very nice shopping street, everything can be found at here. When the special day coming, here also can see the beautiful LED on the tree. If you come to Hokkaido and want to buy something like hair dryer, medicine, makeup material, dessert and cleaning tool s, here is always the best choice and many shops provide tax refund service, so remember take your passport can save money.
  • Loud and bright. Basic lower end shopping district. Covered pathways, lots of food and drink, cheap products. Nice break from the upper scale Sapporo stellar complex.
  • Very Big Shopping street. Nothing much but Numerous of Drug Stores (>10 shops). A great Place to shop from Drug Stores as we found there is not much Drug store around during our visit. Due to very less amount of Tourists in Sapporo, Shopping at Tanukikoji street is so stress free and 轻松. Unlike in Tokyo and Osaka, you do not see Drug Stores here fill up with customers like Sardines in a can.
  • definately worth it to go and go again! you can find bargains there and some restaurants around the corners are definately worthwhile to go! very delicious and price reasonable. all big shopping buildings also around it!
  • Lots of drug stores here. And big Don Quixote which has everything in it. Like literally.
