“Vast underground shopping space”

Sapporo Underground Pedestrian Space

I'm sure we didn't travel the whole area and we got lost lots of time (although it's not too difficult to figure out where to go as it is well signed). I'm not sure how much of it is totally connected but it appears to at least go from the JR Station and covers most of the area around it. At Odori you can walk all the way across to the Susukino entertainment area (and maybe back to Sapporo Station?).

Remember to walk on the left (and avoid being a "bad machine") through these vast caverns beneath central Sapporo. In winter, they are packed.

You'll see the occasional amateur arts/crafts/music event, big screen sumo wrestling and lots of Japanese people avoiding the deep snow aboveground.

Endless shops offering nothing I would ever need or want to buy, but a lot of fun for a stroll just the same.

we were here during winter, and because it was like -6C outside, we tried hanging out down here and check out what's in there, to our surprise, almost everything is down there.
Souvenirs, Chocolates, Ramens, and all sorts of shops, not to mentioned it's right under the JR Sapporo Station and connected to a few other stations/lines.
Very convenient.

The life of a subterranean termite. More people and stores are below ground in Sapporo than above. The place is really interesting and a fun place to go.

It was definitely one of the most interesting underground shopping spaces in Japan. A great place to hide from rain.
