Sapporo HolidaysReference WW40057
The city of Sapporo lies in the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido and is the perfect holiday spot for literally anyone. With a stark contrast between its summer and winter temperatures, there's something to do in all seasons.
From the winter wonderland that comes to life in the colder months to the parks and gardens you can explore when it's a bit hotter outside; Sapporo has it all. Thick snow turns the city into a winter wonderland during the winter months, which makes it the perfect destination for those looking to try a winter sports holiday. There are ski-slopes within the city limits, and residents often enjoy a quick run after work.
Sapporo is a clean and attractive city with plenty of parks and gardens, wide tree-lined streets, several excellent museums and galleries and enough shops, restaurants and bars to keep everybody entertained.
For some insight into the fascinating Ainu culture and the region's history, visit the outdoor museum in the Hokkaido Nopporo Forest Park, and the Hokkaido Ainu Centre, which is a little way out of the city. For aprés ski relaxation and pampering, why not take an excursion to the famous hot springs of Noboribetsu?
