About Sapporo

If you are visiting Hokkaido, you must stop by Sapporo, the capital of Hokkaido. The history of Hokkaido, the success of the 1972 Olympic Winter Games, and the Sapporo Ice and Snow Festival add to the splendor of the city. There are lots of day activities in Sapporo. You can stroll through the center and visit Odori Park, visit the old Government Office and Clock Tower or you can go shopping at the Sapporo Station and Tanuki Koji. If you would like to relax, a trip to the Jozankei baths (accessible by bus) might be a good choice for you. If you are travelling with children you can also go to the Shiroi Koibito Park. The castle-style architecture, cute dolls and the Shiroi Koibito factory will wow you. For romantics or those with a sweet tooth, a tour of the Shiroi Koibito biscuit factory is perfect. You’ll get to see how those delicious biscuits are made. For foodies, Sapporo brings all the classic dishes of Hokkaido together. In Hokkaido, the crab cannot be missed. You can find lots of delicious crab restaurants all over Sapporo and enjoy the freshest crabs with a pot of Japanese sake. You should also try the Sapporo ramen, soup curry and the Genghis Khan BBQ.
