The After-Midnight Sapporo Sightseeing Model Course, for enjoying the city until morning

For those who want to have fun in Sapporo until morning, we recommend this “After-Midnight Sapporo Sightseeing Model Course.”

Feast on delicious Sapporo cuisine after enjoying the night at clubs and amusement facilities. The plan even includes opportunities to go shopping, and leads to the last stop at a natural onsen (hot spring) for a chance to refresh yourself. Then get breakfast take-out from a Sapporo restaurant popular with the locals and head for the airport. Of course, all the spots featured on the course are open before midnight as well, so you can work them into your own travel plan to get the most out of your nights in Sapporo!

For a fun night out with friends, which do you prefer—clubs, or amusement facilities?

Dance clubs where you can enjoy drinking, dancing, and music are synonymous with night life. Out of the many clubs Sapporo has to offer, this time we’d like to introduce KING XMHU, a club that can be enjoyed even on weeknights. There are as many as 500 visitors during a single weeknight, and weekend traffic sees as many as 1,300 people a night. This entertainment space features a tequila and champagne happy hour as well as dance performances, and is a club that even beginners can enjoy until morning. If you’re looking for something more active, head for an amusement facility! We recommend dropping by Round One’s Susukino venue in Sapporo (Minami 5-jo Nishi 3-chome, Chuo-ku, Sapporo), which features karaoke, bowling, pool, darts, and table tennis. Or, head over to the Digital Batting Stadium Sluggers (Minami 5-jo Nishi 2-chome, Chuo-ku, Sapporo) to the batting center and indoor golf simulator. You can also enjoy bowling and darts at Sugai Dinos (Minami 3-jo Nishi 1-chome, Chuo-ku, Sapporo).

Genghis Khan

Susukino Genghis Khan 5-jo Shop

Sapporo Genghis Khan Yukidaruma, Minami 5-jo Shop
