At one of Hokkaido's oldest shopping districts, Tanukikoji Shopping Street offers a variety of both historical and newly opened shops. Built in 1873, the 1 km (0.6 mi) colorful arcade houses over 200 decorated stores, extending eight blocks from east to west. 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. A visit to Tanukikoji Shopping Street represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sapporo online road trip planner to plot your vacation.

Tourist guides claim it’s a great place for unique shopping. This is not the case at all. It’s a ghost town in the morning with very few open restaurants at lunch time. Few interesting shops if any. The underground shopping streets are way more interesting. It’s overrun with tourists as well so expect the quality of shops to drop as they cater to them over locals. In summer maybe it’s better but I doubt it.
The shopping street spans about 6-7 blocks in a covered pedestrian only walkway. It's similar to the Shinsaibashi shopping area in Osaka, but many stores here are tax-exempt (bring passport) catering to the many Chinese, Taiwanese and Korean tour groups for uniquely Hokkaido sweets or seafood items. Many eating establishment as well including the Sumo hot pot place (see separate review). The street is perpendicular to the underground shopping street with stairs connecting them. Overall it's a good place to come shopping, eating or drinking. We love Sapporo, and Hokkaido in general.
