Sapporo’s nightlife largely revolves around good food, beer and sake. Known for its long history of beer brewing, it only makes sense that a lot of night time activities in Sapporo involve the city’s home-brewed beer. Food-wise, Japan has some of the best cuisine in the world. Because the best and most affordable foods can be found at street food markets, the best time to exploring Japanese cuisine is at night, when the street food scene is in full swing all across Sapporo. So, here are my recommendations for the best things to do in Sapporo at night - head’s up, there’s plenty of food and beer about to go down.
