Sapporo Sightseeing Guide – Hokkaido Japan

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page” – Saint Augustine. Sapporo is a beautiful chapter in this book that should not be skipped when you visit Hokkaido. Sapporo Sightseeing guide is second in the series of Sapporo travel blogs listing twelve of my favorite places in the city I call home. Spending a few days in Sapporo will give you enough time to explore these sites as they are all accessible by public transport.

Furano and Biei Hokkaido

Hokkaido has a rather short summer in comparison to the mainland Japan. This is when the mountains and valleys come alive with colourful flowers after being buried under snow for almost 6 months. Hokkadians too come out of their winter cocoon and go out to experience nature’s beauty. Furano and Biei in central Hokkaido are two popular destinations among the locals and tourists in summer.

One day trip from Sapporo – Shakotan and Otaru

On the west of Sapporo lies the Ishikari  bay, which supplies a wealth of quality seafood to the legendary old town of Otaru. Further west from Otaru is the district of Shakotan, a mountainous landscape surrounded by sea on all three sides. These two destination can be easily combined for a day trip from Sapporo. On this trip you can enjoy Uni in Shakotan, Sushi in Otaru, and the beautiful scenery of south western Hokkaido. Its like icing two cakes with one spoon.
