Susukino is Sapporo’s red light district.  It is a fun and safe place to wander around at night taking pictures of the karaoke, hostess club and bar touts trying to wrangle customers into their establishments.  There are so many bars and clubs, tucked in back alleys, that even the locals have to ask for directions.  You also see some of the camaraderie that plays out after a long night of drinking.  The neon signs and billboards are colorful and garish making for interesting reading.  I hope you enjoy these photos.
