You can purchase all sorts of clothes (including kimonos), electric appliances, musical instruments, materials, and other speciality merchandise. When you grow tired of shopping, a wide selection of restaurants and movie theaters offer relaxation and dining. The street can get crowded--karaoke fans might want to take advantage of the captive audiences at a local bar.

  • Cool place to wander around in. A covered shopping arcade with everything you could imagine, want, or need. When I started feeling like I was in the same shop as I was 5 minutes ago, I know it was tim...  more »
  • Nothing special, all is a drug store, is thousands of days before the replica. Anyway, thousand days ago that kind of place I also do not like. It's a place where people come from. Ate a sizzling string, the terrible also kill people. It feels super bad.

  • The streets are very clean and wide which is very easy for shopping and walking at night time. There is Don Quixote shop at 3-Chome, it was worth going to for bargain goods. That would be great for you who stay near Odori Park or even the arcade like Watermark Hotel Sapporo.
  • Very long street. Nicely decorated . Many stores. Plenty of cheaper options. Some shops open until 2am.
  • Great place to shop. Many shops (arcade style). Variety of drug stores (several large Sapporo Drug Stores and Kokumin which hire Chinese-speaking staff), used item shops, restaurants, souvenir shops. There's also a Donki here with 5 floors of stuff.
  • Shopping Arcade with glass ceiling roof top along the street with different sections separated by traffic lights for road traffic. Drug stores, souvenir shops, restaurants, boutiques and many other shops for a good shopping experience. Locals and tourists all head for this shopping arcade for entertainments, shopping or social gathering due to the convenient locations.
  • Great place to walk around in downtown Sapporo. Easily accessible by subway and streetcar, and taxis are frequent as well. The arcade is covered by a roof, so you can escape inclement weather. Went here to eat twice during my week stay. There are a lot of dining and shopping options
