Sapporo, the North Star

Snow, beer, or colonial architecture… What best defines Sapporo, the capital city of Hokkaido? Discover northern Japan in the city covered in snow most of the year, through its streets, its festivals, and its food.

Sapporo's winter in a white coat

With six months of snow and a freezing temperature at the beginning of the year of -8°C, from November to April Sapporo lives under a thick white snowy blanket, which the city has embraced to its advantage. The slopes of Mount Moiwa or the Niseko ski area offer skiers a long and extended ski season, and it's no coincidence that this is where the first Winter Olympic Games in Japan were held in 1972.

In February, when there is the heaviest snowfall, the Snow Festival brings two million visitors who come to admire the giant ice sculptures spread out in Odori Park, the streets of Susukino, and the massive Tsudome stadium.
