What you'll do

If Japan’s cities were family members, Sapporo would be the cool cousin. Known for its thrilling winter sports, spectacular Hoheikyo hot springs, year-round Ōdōri Park festivals, and its iconic beer brand, Sapporo is an city that demands attention. With a local host, you’ll tick off 15 of the city’s must-sees with the ease of a ski jumper zooming down the famous Okura-yama slope. Try fresh uni (sea urchin) at the traditional Nijo Market, explore cultural hub Nakajima Park next to the Toyohira River, and visit the Sapporo Beer Museum to sample a range of delicious brews. In tranquil Maruyama Park, see 150-year-old Hokkaidō Shrine before heading to your local insider’s favorite izakaya, where the zangi chicken is extra crispy.

Where you’ll go

Kick off your whirlwind experience in central Sapporo’s iconic Ōdōri Park, a mile-long green strip separating the city’s northern and southern halves and connecting famous attractions like the Sapporo TV Tower and the wood-built, western-influenced Clock Tower.

Moiwa Ropeway for a spectacular birds-eye view of the city, and one of your local host’s best-kept secrets: Horomitoge Lavender Garden, a sprawling, lavender-blanketed lookout point.
