You’ll explore Sapporo as you would with a friend; eating what there is to be eaten (miso ramen in particular), drinking what there is to be drunk and doing what there is to be done!

The city might be young, but it’s certainly not lacking in history and culture. From phenomenal parks like Nakajima Park, Japanese gardens and the gateway to Hokkaidō’s mountains and hot springs, so there’s so much to discover.

Your local Sapporo host will show you to famous sites like Hokkaidō Shrine or the Mount Okura Ski Jump, introduce you to the food scene (by feasting with you on Sapporo’s native style of miso ramen in Ramen Alley or kaisen don - a delicately balanced dish of raw seafood on top of a bed of fluffy white rice) and share a famous Sapporo beer with you. You know, like you would with your friend.

You couldn’t see it all in a day, but we’ll try to get you to as many of the spots on your Sapporo to-do list as we can. Just let us know what you’re interested in, the pace you’d like to go at and we’ll do the rest!

  • Whatever your vibe, enjoy 8 hours in the city with your host and immerse yourself in Sapporo’s unique culture

  • Experience the side of Sapporo that what you want - from the shrines and local life to grand sights, the day is yours to make

  • Feast on local dishes and street eats along the way, discovering Japanese cuisine as you’ve never tasted before

  • Learn about Japanese and Hokkaidō culture as you visit the sights you’ve been dreaming of seeing

  • Get the scoop on Sapporo with recommendations for other hidden gems and fun things to do in the city

Reviews for Sapporo

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

A very pleasant morning with a courteous and helpful guide

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!
