Full description
Discover Sapporo as you would if you were visiting a friend who lived there, someone who will make you feel like they’ve known you and their city forever. The city itself is famed for its beautiful parks and gardens, regional cuisine (and beer), and its annual festivals. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Sapporo is also the gateway to Hokkaidō’s mountains and hot springs, providing you with urban and natural environments ripe for exploration. Although a young city, Sapporo is packed with exciting things to do and incredible cuisine to enjoy. Communicating directly with your guide beforehand to suggest an itinerary and agree on a meeting time and place, you can tailor your Sapporo experience to suit your interests and plan your dream day. If food is your thing, feast on the incredible seafood and miso ramen Sapporo is renowned for. Your guide can take you to places like Ramen Alley where you can sample Hokkaidō ramen made from a rich miso-based broth, which is perfect for cold winters. Or try seafood as fresh as it comes and indulge in local dishes like “kaisen-don,” a delicately balanced dish of raw seafood on top of a bed of fluffy white rice.  There is much more to Sapporo than food though. Your guide can lead you to the city’s most iconic sites, sacred shrines, and bustling, neon-lit neighborhoods. From landmarks like the Hokkaidō Shrine or the Mount Okura Ski Jump, you will explore pockets of the city where you can immerse yourself in the culture of Hokkaidō. As well as visiting the places you’d most like to see, your guide will share with you local spots and places of interest to stop by along the way, giving you an authentic insight into local life in Sapporo. Whether you’d like to see its historic sites, feast on specialty local dishes, or see the landmarks left behind after the Winter Olympics, your host will create a personalized experience just for you. With your thoughtfully matched host by your side, you can skip the tourist traps and discover the real Sapporo.
