Being expert of Chikaho (an abbreviation of chika-hokou-kuukan, meaning underground space for the pedestrians) means you are now very quick mover in the centre of Sapporo.

Chikaho is the underground pass between only JR Sapporo Station and subway Odori Station, but it connects to the other shopping underground arcade named Poletown, so you can walk on to Susukino. Compared with Poletown, Chikaho is open and used as a park on the street, so there's more places for the event. (Luckily enough, however, the large drugstore locates at Odori side).

One of the smart ways of using Chikaho is finding the sign of AKARENGA TERASS very close to the Sapporo Station. As the name shows, it is the exit for the Akarenga (red bricks) building, that is also well-known as a former Hokkaido Government building. So following this sign, you can call on the spot comfortably even under snowy day of Hokkaido winter!

Another happy idea to use Chikaho is to find giant 9 and use the elevator next to it. Get it off and turn the next corner right--- to follow the shortcut to the Clocktower!
