Explore ‘Special Moments’ at ugo ‘Neck of the Woods’ in Sapporo

Hello, I’m Hoshi, a curator at UNWIND HOTEL & BAR SAPPORO.

At LIVELY HOTELS, our curators offer a unique service that goes beyond traditional concierge roles by providing localized information. Our goal is to enhance your travels by helping you discover both popular tourist spots and local hidden gems.

At UNWIND HOTEL & BAR SAPPORO, we tailor our travel recommendations to suit your style, covering everything from must-see attractions to the best local hangouts in Sapporo.

Today, I’m excited to introduce “ugo ‘Neck of the Woods’,” a new cultural hub in Sapporo. Following the success of its flagship store in Toyohira Ward, this second location opened last December. Under the concept of “Special moments in your neighborhood,” it offers premium shisha, carefully selected drinks, an urban atmosphere, and diverse experiences.

Visit ugo ‘Neck of the Woods’ to enjoy:

  • Premium Shisha: High-quality shisha for a relaxing experience.
  • Curated Drinks: A selection of exquisite drinks to savor.
  • Urban Space: A stylish and modern environment.
  • Diverse Experiences: Various activities and events that showcase local culture.

We invite you to explore this new spot and make your stay in Sapporo even more memorable. For more details and personalized recommendations, feel free to reach out to us at UNWIND HOTEL & BAR SAPPORO.

This area also features a shop where you can purchase carefully selected items. At the flagship store, a monthly “Flowers and Vases” event is held, and this second location also boasts a wide array of exquisite flower vases.

The colorful and uniquely textured vases from “Henry Dean” are stunning to look at and captivate the eye with their beauty.

As you learn about the background and stories behind the owner and the brand, and as you browse through the thoughtfully curated items, you’ll find yourself increasingly drawn into the enchanting world of ugo.

▲ Original products filled with meticulous attention to detail are also available for purchase.

Here are some highlighted items from the shop area:

  • Right: TOMORI: ugo’s original shisha bowl, created in collaboration with Kusatsu ware artisans. This versatile item can also be used as a candle holder, offering a 2-in-1 functionality.
  • Left: “Be Loved”: A Shigaraki ware wall-mounted single-flower vase. Available in a variety of colors, its simple design easily complements any interior decor.

And now, the food, drinks, and shisha you ordered have arrived. Enjoy!

I ordered a “Café Latte,” “Honey Cheese Toast,” and “Yoshiwo Ice Cream.”

The Café Latte, served in an original glass, features a beautiful gradient of coffee and milk that looks almost too good to drink.

The Honey Cheese Toast is a staff favorite and highly recommended. The generous layer of cheese topped with honey creates a perfect balance of salty and sweet that is simply irresistible!

Yoshiwo Ice Cream is a unique craft ice cream that you can only find here in Hokkaido. Sourced from the owner’s hometown of Aichi Prefecture, its flavors change with the seasons, offering a delightful surprise every time you visit.

▲ The seats along the wall are equipped with power outlets, making using the space as a coworking area possible.

From midday to late at night, this facility offers various ways to enjoy your time. It’s a place brimming with excitement, perfect for those seeking new experiences or simply looking to relax and unwind.

Seasonal events are also held, so be sure to check out their Instagram for the latest updates.

Whether you’re a local resident or a traveler, “ugo ‘Neck of the Woods'” in Sapporo is a must-visit destination. It comes highly recommended for everyone!
