Geared around ladies fashion and specialty stores in the Center Zone, many of the shops in Hokkaido can only be found here in this shopping center along with cosmetic stores and variety stores. The East Zone features a whole host of specialty stores that meet a wide range of needs including men’s fashion, culture and lifestyle stores.

    This place is better for locals than tourists. For tourists, I’d recommend Aeon b/c of the variety. Stellar places does have good places to eat, however I wouldn’t say it’s the best place for gifts...

Hokkaido Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
