What you’ll do

Imagine starting your day with a stroll through the leafy Odori Park or sipping some regional green tea in a traditional tea house? With one of our local Sapporo hosts by your side, you could do just that!

Enjoy a full day in the city with your host showing you the ropes. From iconic spots to hidden gems - whatever you want to see, we’ll do our best to make it happen.

You’ll weave your way through the inner city or a few lesser-known neighbourhoods and get to know each part as if you’re one of the locals.

From enjoying Sapporo’s beautiful parks and gardens, regional cuisine (and beer, of course!) or venturing into Hokkaidō’s mountains and hot springs - there’s a day for every personality here.

We’d recommend you check out a few iconic landmarks like the Hokkaidō shrine and or the more quirky Mount Okura Ski Jump, as well as trying some specialities like miso ramen or gyoza, but it’s really all up to you!

A city is more a feeling than a place, so that’s what you’ll discover as you enjoy a day in Sapporo, your way.

Sapporo with Robin

Had a great day with Robin, my wife and kids enjoyed his company and his ability to show us around the agreed sites. Highly recommend Robin for families visiting the area. He communicated great and the whole experience from booking to the days activities were spot on. Will definitely see him again on our return

Half day private guided walking tour of Sapporo

Robinn asked our preference ofvthe places to see and actually followed our suggestions. Was glad to have explored the city using their public transport. Would have been better if Robinn shared info and facts about the places we visted though. But appreciated that he brought us to this amazing soup curry resto-Garaku! Got hooked to soup curry!
