Nice ice sculptures, plenty of restaurants/bars close by. Also, ice bar selling warm drinks. The hot rum lemonade was yummy.

Susukino is a suburb of Sapporro containing the largest entertainment district (both red light and nightlife) north of Tokyo. On first sight it appears somewhat similar to Shibuya/Shijuku, although on a much smaller scale. Easily accessed via the subway which comes out at Susukino station, literally in the main centre of Susukino.

Myself and my partner deliberately got a hotel in this district to take advantage of this nightlife and it didn't disappoint. Despite a somewhat dodgy reputation due to reported yakuza influence I felt completely safe in this area and it provided numerous bars, restaurants and nightlife opportunities. There was a great atmosphere and the neon signs provided juicy photo opportunities.

I would recommend others attempt to get a hotel in this subuirb to take advantage of this place.

Stayed in the area at the nearby mercure hotel. The area is bustling at night with all the nearby shopping malls, restaurants and ramen alley shops. The area has a relaxed vibe compared o the hustle and bustle of Tokyo and Osaka and the area feels very safe even though it is a red light area though the services provided are very discreet if you cant read Japanese.

Shopping in this area is very competitive. Was able to buy a decent luggage bag at a reasonable price here. Food her is excellent and cheaper than Tokyo and Osaka but just as good. Nice area to stay when in Sapporo to breath in the atmosphere of this city.

This place is an entertainment district of Sapporo. The nightlife in Susukino is more vibrant than in the daytime. The area have lots of restaurants, bars, pachinko and red light district. This place is famous for ramen alley (Ramen Yokocho) as well. They have a number of restaurants selling ramen. I've found a nice Miso Ramen in Susukino and the price is quite cheap too but we have to wait for a while to sit because the restaurant is small but very busy.

We sampled the various Ramen shops along this popular dining and entertainment area. Some of these Ramen shops serves very delicious Ramen that is cooked in a small kitchen right in front of you...each small shop lining this street usually accommodates 8 -10 customers in one seating. As you enter, buy the ticket for the Ramen meal of your choice from the vending machine, give it to the chef and your bowl of piping hot Ramen is cooked and served to you within 10-15 minutes. do not stay any longer than necessary when you finished the meal because there may be a long line of customers waiting for their turn to enjoy the Ramen too.
