Tanukikoji is a shopping arcade in Sapporo Hokkaido Perfecture Japan, that has been in operation since the frontier time. There are a lot of shopping outlets to buy Hokkaido souvenirs!

Tanukikoji shopping street is the main shopping district in Sapporo and is about 1km-long with around 200 shops that stretches from east to west in downtown Sapporo. The roofed arcade begins at Nishi-1-chome and stops at Nishi-7-chome, which allow shopping regardless of the weather. The arcade was built up during the frontier period. In year 1869, when the Meiji government set up the Hokkaido Development Commission in Sapporo, merchant houses and restaurants started to settle there in what is known today as the Tanukikoji 2 and 3-chome areas. In 1873, the neighborhood became recognised as “Tanukikoji”. The arcade, which many tourists visit, features both old and new shops, souvenir shops, and karaoke bars.

Tanuki Koji Shopping Arcade What To Buy

At the center, Lane 4 leads to the subway station, which connects to a collection of underground shopping malls. Fashion boutiques are especially popular, and they sell everything from name-brand Western designs to traditional cotton or silk kimonos.

You will be able to find old and traditional merchants selling kimonos, tea or incense side by side with modern stores specializing in computers and software or state-of -the-art electronics and digital cameras - all of which lends it a bazaar-like quality. Many items for sale here are even cheaper than in the 100 yen shops. Check out the Donki’s Store for strange merchandise. Plenty of games centre and coffee shops.

Wood carvings are another popular product in Hokkaido, which might want to consider buying. Many of them are produced by the Ainu and take animal shapes like bears, deer and owls. These and other handmade items are available in the boutiques of Sapporo as well as in museum and hotel gift shops.
