Sitatte Sapporo is a business center in central Sapporo. This modern looking building has restaurants, coffee shops, and event spaces on its premises. Sitatte is best known for its ‘Step Garden’ which acts as a meeting spot and a spot to sit and relax. The name Sitatte combines the words ‘sit’ and ‘atte’ (atte meaning ‘to meet’ in Japanese). The step garden is also acts as a symbol for this building. The step garden entrance is on the basement floor and extends from the Chikaho Underground Walkway. This underground walkway connects Sapporo station to Odori park and is a busy pedestrian space.
The space is made mainly from wood and is a quiet spot in the middle of the busy city. It is located on the corner of Sapporo’s main street “Sapporo Ekimae-dori” and “Kita 3-jo-dori”, which is said to be the first modern street in Sapporo. Take a seat anyway in the step garden and you can enjoy the free wifi offered here, plus you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee from the small coffee shop here, Marumi Coffee. The rest of the building from the ground floor up consists of offices and businesses. There are half a dozen restaurants here as well to get some lunch or dinner. The building has been built with modernity in mind. It is an office building that is energy-saving and environmentally friendly.
