A modern, bustling city known for its beer brewery, Sapporo attracts millions of visitors with its Snow Festival, during which elaborate ice and snow sculptures are exhibited all over town.
On the 15th (Sat), steep yourself in history at Sapporo Clock Tower, get into the urban bustle at Sapporo Underground Shopping Centre Aurora Town, fly down the slopes at Okurayama Lookout, then take some stellar pictures from Mt. Moiwa, and finally walk around Odori Park. Keep things going the next day: get engrossed in the history at Historical Village of Hokkaido (Kaitaku-no Mura), then contemplate the waterfront views at Otaru Canal, then take in the architecture and design of Hokkaido University Sapporo Campus, and finally ponder the world of politics at Former Hokkaido Government Office Building.

Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Kyoto (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, get your game on at Sunset Owl Cafe, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and take a stroll through Dotombori District.

To see other places to visit, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Osaka trip maker.

Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Sapporo in February: high temperatures in Osaka hover around 11°C and lows are around 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) to allow time to travel to Tokyo.
