Susukino, Sapporo is known around the country as a brilliant neon playground for adults looking to have a night of fun. This massive nightlife area extends across several city blocks and is jam-packed with tiny restaurants, izakayas (Japanese pubs), British pubs, bars, karaoke, hostess clubs, dance clubs, foreigner-owned bars, buskers, and more! It’s no wonder roughly 80,000 people come to Susukino every single night. While some head to the popular nightlife spot after work and catch the last train home at midnight, hundreds of others ride the last train to Susukino so that they can party until the sun rises. Be sure to check out an event calendar during your stop in Sapporo as the area hosts several large events throughout the year, including the Susukino Shrine Festival in the Summer and Susukino Ice World in the Winter.
