What you can expect

Hop aboard a bus and whisk around the city of Sapporo, the mountainous capital of Hokkaido that is famous for its skiing, festivals, and beer. See all the sights in just a few hours on this wonderfully efficient tour.

Your introduction to the city begins at the Sapporo Grand Hotel. Weave your way through town, catching glimpses of landmarks like the TV Tower, Clock Tower, Tanukikoji shopping center, Hokkaido Shrine, and the Maruyama Zoo. While the city certainly has manmade structures to appreciate, it’s full of many natural wonders as well. Experience the mystical beauty of Maruyama Primeval Forest, the Botanical Gardens at Hokkaido University, and Mt. Moiwa looming over the city in the distance.

Enjoy most of these sights from the comfort of your bus, but take the opportunity to explore 2 stop-over points: Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium and Sapporo Central Wholesale Market. The former, used during the 1972 Winter Olympics, provides panoramic views of the city from nearly 1,000 feet above (300 m). Next, taste the flavors of the city at the Sapporo Wholesale Market. Sample seasonal fruits, dried fish, and affordable fresh sushi.

Your tour concludes back at the Sapporo Grand Hotel, but it doesn’t have to end there. Continue on your own self-guided tour of the city, visiting any number of the spots you saw on the tour that you further want to explore.
