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.
Get out of town with these interesting Sapporo side-trips: Otaru Canal (in Otaru) and Niseko Annupuri International Ski Area (in Niseko-cho). There's still lots to do: stroll around Odori Park, take an in-depth tour of Historical Village of Hokkaido (Kaitaku-no Mura), steep yourself in history at Sapporo Clock Tower, and fly down the slopes at Sapporo Teine.
