Sosei River East
The Sosei River runs through the center of Sapporo. Sapporo's streets are laid out in a grid, and the river divides the city into an eastern part and a western part. Sosei River Park was created along the river recently. The area called Sosei River East has both old streetscapes and new buildings, which gives it a quaint feel. There are unique cafés and restaurants in that area. The Sosei River East area also has Nijo Market and Sapporo Factory, which attract shoppers and are popular among tourists.
