    Shiraoi Ainu Village - also known as "Porotokotan", the design of the museum as an outdoor museum is divided into modern and village zone. Inside a house, explanations of Ainu history and culture are given and traditional dances are performed at all times of visitors. Sapporo got 3 beer factories , there are Sapporo, Kirin and Chitose.

    The urban center of Hokkaido and a transit point for most people visiting the region. Sapporo is known for its excellent food and the famous snow festival. A pleasant city with relatively wide boulevards and friendly people.

    With excellent beer and outstanding ramen and seafood (crab and salmon especially, though it'll hurt your wallet), Sapporo is synonymous in the mind of many Japanese with eating, but it's also an attractive city of parks with an outstanding Winter Festival where the northern character of the city really shines. Best of all, unlike much of Hokkaido, it's directly accessible on the JR system, by overnight train from Tokyo.

    This is my favorite city in Japan so far. It's not as crazy busy as Tokyo and has similar shopping and entertainment. It's urban, lively and fun. The city is known for its Snow Festival in February. I really want to come back and experience it.

    A place which you can visit all-year-round. From blossom to snowflake, every season bears distinctive attractions that make your trip memorable. The hotspring is also what-you-can't-miss. What's more, it is the origin of Sapporo beer.

    Sapporo is most known for its beer and awesome anual snow festival. When I went for the ice festival I carved a mug out of ice and drank Pepsi from it, ate endless bowls of delectable ramen, and sat spas surrounded by snow. Enjoy the scenery on the overnight train from Tokyo, enjoy the festival for a few days, and then take a bus up north and visit some onsen ;)

    Sapporo is the largest urban city in Hokkaido. Although it is still in no way close to having the hustle and bustle of Tokyo or Osaka, Sapporo has charm and its own characters. The miso ramen here is fantastic, the milk products are must tries, and in Hokkaido, Sapporo IS the shopping mecca of the land!

    For something different, why not visit Sapporo? It the best of both worlds - gorgeous natural scenery just out of town, a buzzing nightlife and the best Ramen in all of Japan! Definitely check out the Sapporo Beer Museum also - even if you aren't a huge beer drinker, the all you can eat restaurant is soooo good!

Description

The largest city on Japan's north island, and a main-line thoroughfare, Sapporo is somewhere most travelers in Japan are likely to pass through on their way to Mt. Tein for skiing or to one of the nearby beaches. If you get the chance, however, consider staying to explore for a few days: though Sapporo may not have the same "Japanese" feel-- it is a relatively young city and is, therefore, lacking in much traditional Japanese architecture-- it is a beautiful, spacious city, full of parks and wide boulevards, with a thriving culture and plenty to see. It's undisputed most-famous ambassador-to-the-world is the eponymous brewing company, which makes its home in Sapporo. Admission to the beer museum is free, though you won't find much in English. Sapporo's Tokeidai, clock tower, is an iconic symbol of town, which looks strangely like something one might find on a Nebraskan farm. If you're planning a trip to the area, attempt to coincide with the Sapporo Snow Festival, held the first week in February. The ice sculpture competition draws artists from all over the world to Sapporo for a chance to show their talent; be sure to stroll through Odori Koen-- the sight of the sculpture ... read more
contest-- at night for a real treat: the finished sculptures are lit beautifully, creating an incredibly surreal winter wonderland.
