Sapporo Factory

Situated in a former brewery with a central courtyard full of greenery, the lively Sapporo Factory is full of restaurants, shops offering travel gear, and even features a theatre. The huge glass rooftop makes it very light. Shops like Adidas, Nike, Crocs, Puma, Victorinox, The North Face and Elizabeth Jewelry are all located here. With 160 stores you can easily spend a few hours here shopping.


Sapporo provides a great number of stores, offering everything from fashion boutiques with well-known Western brands to traditional cotton or silk kimonos. Not only the city offers a number of large underground malls such as the popular Tanuki Koji Shopping Arcade, but also department stores like Parco with ten floors of shopping—and don't forget the small local shops selling souvenirs. Other popular products in Hokkaido besides kimonos are wood carvings, produced often by the Ainus, available in the boutiques of Sapporo as well as in the gift shops of hotels and museums.
