If you love beer (and who doesn’t occasionally on a rugby tour?), chocolate, exploring and history then Sapporo will offer something for everyone during Rugby World Cup 2019.
There is plenty to see and do, it’s fantastic for foodie loving fans on an adventure and small enough to explore easily.
Our events team has recently returned from Sapporo and have put together their top 10 things to see and do. You won’t be disappointed.
Number 10 - Moerenuma Park
The park owes its bold design to the renowned Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi. Noguchi passed away shortly after his plans were completed, but his designs were carried out and the park was opened to the public in 2005.
Number 9 - Hokkaido Shrine
Number 8 - Odori Park
Number 7 - Kaitaku no Mura
The restaurants even offer food from the time period. It’s about a 15 minute bus ride away from Sapporo and a great way to spend a few hours on your adventure.
Number 6 - Jozankei
There are plenty of lodging facilities complete with hot spring baths that you can enjoy on a day-trip. It’s about an hour away from the centre of Sapporo, but you can go without a car, so why not check it out.
Number 5 - Sapporo Jyogai Market
Number 4 - Sapporo TV Tower
Number 3 - Sapporo Beer Museum
Number 2 - Okurayama Ski Jump
If you want to take it to the next level and really feel like an Olympic athlete, then why not stop off at the Sapporo Olympic Museum. Not only does it give you an in depth insight into the history of the Winter Olympics in Japan, but it has amazing simulation games for sports such as Ice Hockey and the Ski Jump itself!
Number 1 - Mount Moiwa
“The night view from Mount Moiwa is an ideal spot for viewing the mountain’s stunning forest and the Sapporo city scape. It really is a stunning view and at night it’s so beautiful that its as if time stands still. It’s simple to access too as you can hop on the ‘Kirito Car’ (like a mini cable car).”
You are on holiday after all, so why not!
