What you’ll do

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!

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!
