How it works
Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
In Sapporo, there’s always a reason to celebrate. Spring and summer welcome almost weekly food and beer festivals to Ōdōri Park, the mile-long green strip connecting some of the city’s most famous attractions, and in the colder months, the relatively quiet city transforms into a winter wonderland – an oasis of snow-capped mountains and thrilling winter sports culminating in the annual Sapporo Snow Festival that draws visitors from all across Japan – and all this is just in the city center! Sapporo has everything you’d be looking for in a Japanese city: spectacular cuisine, a shopping scene that ranges from tightly-packed traditional markets to high-end department stores, and even its own neon-lit “Little Tokyo”! But just outside the central hub, a wealth of unique attractions can be discovered. From the scenic Hoheikyo hot springs high in the mountains to the perfectly preserved Historical Village of Hokkaidō, the list of things to do in Sapporo will have any type of traveler itching to return.
