Overview

Sapporo, under the auspices of the Meiji government’s “Hokkaido Kaitakushi” development plan in 1869, was designated to be a large-scale metropolis. The Meiji government was interested in advancing the modernization of Japan, and Hokkaido, with its rich natural resources, was to be a key part of the plan. Sapporo, as the center of all things Hokkaido, has rapidly progressed in its role as a central city, growing up to a true metropolis of 1.9 million people. Sapporo is focused on being even more representative as an international city that showcases Japan’s best. After leaving your accommodation, you will first visit the famous Nijo Market. This market is popularly known as the kitchen of Sapporo, with the best of seasonal seafood, fruits, and other specialties on display as you walk around.

After Nijo market, you’ll ride the subway to the “White Lovers” (known in Japanese as “Shiroi Koibito”) Park. In this theme park, you will find an overflowing of candy charm, plus factory tours and of course the "white lover" confection itself, an institution in Hokkaido. You’ll not only enjoy a candy making experience, but also a learning one, specifically about the history of the brand and company, including a display of valuable antique cups. It goes without saying that there will be lots of chances to enjoy the chocolate, be it white, brown, or black. In September 2016, White Lovers opened a new prayer room to accommodate their Muslims visitors. Should you wish to do so, you are welcome to take your time of worship here. After finishing up at “White Lovers” Park, we’ll return to the city center and visit the long-popular ramen shop (founded in 1958) "Horyu", which is always bustling at lunch. The ramen here has a rich broth with a delicious infusion of miso, a perfect match for the perfect noodles and toppings. Particularly recommended is the "Genghis Khan Ramen," which allows you to taste the two major Sapporo specialties of Genghis Khan and ramen at the same time! After lunch, by subway and bus we will visit Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium. Okurayama is well known as the ski jump venue during the 1972 Olympic Winter Games in Sapporo, but even now many international ski jumping competitions are held. Ride the lift to the 307m summit and admire the city of Sapporo and the Ishikari Plain spreading out before you. During winter, you can enjoy a particularly superb view, with the pure white snow dazzling the scene around you. Beneath the 307m summit’s observatory is the starting line for the ski jump. Here you can realistically experience the jumper’s feeling before they make their run. After enjoying the ski jump stadium, the tour will end with a return to your accommodations. With our local guide leading the way, enjoy Sapporo to your heart's content during this splendid one day tour.
