How to Spend 1 Day in Sapporo

How to Spend 1 Day in Sapporo

The large city of Sapporo, the capital of Hokkaido, is best-known for beer, ramen, and its annual snow festival. On a one-day visit, there’s time to check out some of the top highlights, take in the views, sample the local food and beer, and explore the vibrant nightlife. Here’s how to make the most of 24 hours in the city.

 

Morning: See City Highlights

Start your day with a tour of top city highlights, such as the Former Hokkaido Government Office Building, Sapporo Clock Tower, Odori Park, Hokkaido Jingu Shrine, and Central Wholesale Market. A half-day or full-day guided tour will help you make the most of your time: Delve into local life and small neighborhoods on a walking tour, or opt for a private tour to fully customize your itinerary. Don’t miss the panoramic views from the top of Sapporo TV Tower, a great way to get your bearings in the city.

 

Afternoon: Sample Some Beer

The island of Hokkaido is known as the birthplace of Japanese beer. Spend your afternoon sampling some local brew: Take a tour at the Sapporo Beer Hokkaido Brewery, just outside the city center, then visit the Sapporo Beer Museum, which has an attached beer garden. True beer aficionados should also visit the Asahi Beer Factory for a tour and tasting. These beers can also be found all throughout the city; during the summer, the beer garden inside Odori Park is a great place to enjoy them.

 

Night: Taste the Nightlife

Join a nighttime walking food tour to sample local favorites, such as miso ramen and Hokkaido crab, and find hidden gems off the beaten path. For nightlife, dining, and even shopping, head to the Susukino District, the largest entertainment district north of Tokyo, which is home to thousands of establishments. Enjoy all-you-can-drink (nomihodai) bars, sing your heart out in a karaoke box, dance the night away at hopping clubs, or enjoy some gambling at the pachinko parlors. Those looking for a more low-key evening can head to the top of Mt. Moiwa for dinner and nighttime views of the city.
