Sapporo, which covers about the same area as Hong Kong, is the prefectural capital of Hokkaido and is the northernmost city in Japan as designated by government ordinance. With 1,970,470 people (as of March 1, 2022), it is the fifth most populous city in Japan.
The average temperature throughout the year is 9.5°C. The average summer temperature is 22.5°C, which is lower than that of Honshu, but because the humidity is also low it makes for pleasant summers. On the other hand, the average winter temperature is -7°C and there is a lot of snow. Since strong snow measures such as snow removal are taken in the city of Sapporo, you will not have much trouble with snow if you visit Sapporo in the winter for sightseeing. However, during the winter, the inside of buildings are well heated and the temperature difference from inside to outside is somewhat extreme, so it is advisable to wear clothes that are easy to layer.
Speaking of Sapporo's regular sightseeing spots, the first is Odori Park. It is known as the venue for the Sapporo Snow Festival, which has evolved into a global event. Although it is located in the office district in the center of the city, it has grassy areas, trees, and fountains, and is popular as a place of relaxation for tourists as well as residents. Seasonal non-winter events such as the Lilac Festival in spring, the Beer Garden in summer, and the Autumn Fest in autumn are held and are always busy. Moerenuma Park is a beautiful park where nature fuses with art. Its basic design was by Isamu Noguchi, a representative sculptor of the 20th century. From the summit of Mt. Moiwa you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city of Sapporo. Part of the mountain is covered by moiwa primeval forest, a national natural treasure. It is one of the best night view spots in Japan, where you will be fascinated by the glittering night lights that spread out before your eyes. Other sites to see are historic buildings such as Hokkaido Shrine and the Former Hokkaido Government Building, as well as Okurayama Lookout and Miyanomori Jump Stadium used at the 1972 Sapporo Olympic Winter Games for which the facilities, etc., still remain. In addition, there are many slopes within an hour's drive from the city. Feel free to enjoy winter sports in the best powder snow. One of the most fun parts of sightseeing in Sapporo is the food! Agriculture, dairy farming, and fishing are thriving industries in Hokkaido and delicious ingredients are brought to Sapporo from around the island. Ramen, soup curry, and Genghis Khan are representative dishes of Sapporo that use such ingredients. In addition, sushi and seafood bowls that use the freshest of seafood are also must-try dishes.
