Sapporo Underground Pedestrian Street can easily walk from Sapporo Station to a few blocks nearby, especially in winter, because it is really cold outside and the ground is wet and slippery. Pedestrian Street links several large department stores, and you can find many delicious stores. It feels like you can spend a whole day here.
Sapporo Underground Pedestrian Street is just below JR Sapporo Station. From north to south, the east-west direction is full of shops. There are fashion stores, cosmetics stores, exquisite gift shops, noodle shops and sushi shops. It feels like you can spend a whole day here, especially in hot or rainy days, without sunshine or rain.
Sapporo Underground Street, which stretches from Sapporo Railway Station to Boye Metro Station, passes through Datong Metro Station for more than two kilometers. It is the longest underground street in Japan. It's mainly because of the climate in Sapporo, especially when walking on the ground in winter, it's easy to be disturbed by rain and snow, so the underground passage is built in all directions, completely like a labyrinth. Whether it's shopping or eating in the Underground Street, it's not boring to spend a day in it.
The underground transportation in Japan is very developed, so the commercial streets have been developed around the underground railway, and everything is very busy. I like this kind of underground business which is not affected by the climate, because I can walk around for a while and get to my destination. Sapporo - Chase - Boye, in fact, is not too far away.
JR Sapporo Station's underground shopping street is crowded with many shops. You can walk and walk all the way to Datong Park or Boye. Sapporo Station is directly connected to several ground shopping malls, such as JR TOWER, Dawan Department Store, ESTA, PASEO, etc.
Instead of spending time on ground trips, shopping and dining, you can do this conveniently and comfortably in the underground mall. It's connected to major shopping malls and you can buy traditional local clothes, souvenirs, fashion clothes, food and many other things in a few steps. This is an easy and necessary project in Sapporo.
