Sapporo: Underground

In Sapporo, if you walk down this main street, next to Odori park


you will see this small white sign on the side of a building


and when you get closer you will notice


that it is an entrance to the subway system.

Yet it is much more than that.

Because Sapporo is a northern island it receives a lot of winter snowfall, and so the city planners built in a lot of underground space.

A lot!

Subways, shopping, etc.


Go down these stairs and


walk along this corridor

and you will find a busy underground world (but remember to walk on the opposite side):
