Its good to shop and eat here if it is raining outside. There is a lot of resturants and acrade around but less shopping. Towards the end is mostly resturant and bars as there are lesser people there. If you like arcade, properly that's the place to go.

some tourists guess it is because longer winter here in hokkaido, but i have seen all similar shopping areas in osaka and tokyo. I guess japan generally just try their best to offer the best shopping comforts for visitors, sapporo too. From sapporo JR sta. walk down south along odori underground, need 30 min walk to reach tanukikoji shopping street,... More

This shopping street supposedly has a history dating back 120+ years. Interesting mixture of stores and restaurants. Very worthwhile strolling through the arcade.

Long stretch of shopping for all sorts of shoppers. We stumbled across the Log Kit Sasebo Hamburger place. Reminiscent of our trip in Kyushu eating this wonderful burger! We started at the point opposite Nijo Market and made our way around. Took a turn down into Pole Town and then Aurora Town.

Tanukikoji is a busy shopping street with everything you can find from pharmacy, restaurants, fruits and shoes. I was particularly attracted by their pet shop more than the shopping. The pet shop has dogs and cats that are so KAWAII! I know this will probably anger the animal activist that are against unnatural breeding of animals but I have to... More

It's a nice sheltered shopping street but seriously nothing to shout about. Having said that, the fruit stalls are worth a visit - great selection of fresh fruits at affordable prices. Their melon is a must try, and you can request the stall holder to cut into slices for you, which the prideful Japanese will even pack it nicely for... More

It's a shopping avenue where restaurants, convenient stores and gift shops are packed together. We went there to buy more Royce white chocolate as gifts for our friends and relatives. The shops are almost selling the same thing. Nothing of fancy.

I spent countless of hours here during my recent trip to Sapporo. Tanukikoji Shopping Street stretches several blocks and there are plenty to see, buy and eat. There are many restaurants, souvenir shops, konbini, etc. There's also a Donki halfway in the middle. You can literally shop till you drop here.

my motif to go there is to dine at Ippudo Ramen shop, to me its the best Ramen tasted so far. We discovered Ippudo since 2008 at Arcade 6, if u pass arcade 5 before u cross the street to no 6. U can see it on the left side at no 6.
