Sapporo, One Of The Most Underrated Destinations In Japan

Posted on 08 October 2018 by admin (0)

Sapporo is also one of the largest cities in Japan thanks to its high population density and the biggest town on the Hokkaido Island of northern Japan.

Sapporo was also the host of the 1972 Olympics, which was the first of its kind to be held in Asia. The Snow Festival in Sapporo, which is held every year, draws more than 3 million foreign tourists.

Being in Sapporo, we can assure you that you won’t feel being far from cities like New York, Dubai or London. All these are thanks to the fantastic nightlife, out of the world café and tons and tons of stuff tempting to be shopped. Most of the tourists, just like us, reside in this city as a transit when they are on their way to the Hokkaido Mountains or perhaps, the hot springs, but do note that this place has enough to keep you engaged for weeks together. During the annual Snow Festival, the population of the city almost increases by two-fold. This is something; we wrongly suggest not missing out on. The festival brings in artists from various countries across the world that creates intricate works of art from ice and snow. The main focus of the festival is the Odori Koen. Since it is almost a winter capital/hub of the country, it is known for its ski resorts and also the chocolate and a brewery.
