The flip side on retail therapy

If you are looking for crockery, accessories, bags and other sundries made by local artisans in Sapporo, check out “space1-15”. The facility is an old, hidden-away apartment with only a hand-made floor guide board at the entrance. From the second to the fifth floor are unique shops renovated from 1DK rooms, offering goods you won’t find elsewhere. The stores are also workshops so you can see how the products are made directly or have a chat with the artisans.
