CIty of Ramen

A modern, bustling city known for its beer brewery, Sapporo attracts millions of visitors with its Snow Festival, during which elaborate ice and snow sculptures are exhibited all over town.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Hokkaido University Sapporo Campus as well as Tanukikoji Shopping Street. Sapporo Beer Museum and Old Shimoyoichi Unjoya are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Appreciate the collections at Watanabe Junichi Museum of Literature and Otaru Museum, Bank of Japan. Change things up with these side-trips from Sapporo: Otaru Canal (in Otaru) and Rusutsu Resort Amusement Park (in Rusutsu-mura). There's still lots to do: walk around Odori Park and steep yourself in history at Hokkaido Jingu.

To find reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Sapporo trip planner.

Bangkok, Thailand to Sapporo is an approximately 10-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Bangkok to Sapporo. Traveling from Bangkok in February, expect Sapporo to be much colder, temps between -1°C and -5°C. On the 10th (Mon), you're off to Chitose.

With the largest international airport on the island, Chitose serves for most visitors as a way in or a way out, rather than a destination in itself.

Keep things going the next day: stop by Northern Horse Park, then get some fabulous bargains at Mitsui Outlet Park, Sapporo Kitahiroshima, then contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Shikotsu, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Chitose Shrine.
