CIty of Ramen

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.
Explore Sapporo's surroundings by going to Otaru (Tomioka Catholic Church, Otaru Canal, &more) and Nikka Whisky Yoichi Distillery (in Yoichi-cho). And it doesn't end there: stroll around Odori Park, ponder the world of politics at Former Hokkaido Government Office Building, take an in-depth tour of Historical Village of Hokkaido (Kaitaku-no Mura), and take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Moiwa.
