Sapporo is the capital of mountainous Hokkaido, Japan’s ultimate yukiguni or snow country. Most visitors make the city their starting point for day trips and fun adventures at top ski resorts like Niseko, a short drive out of the city.

    Check out the annual Sapporo Snow Festival to admire the works of the country’s best ice sculptors put on display or enjoy a sip of great Japanese beer while learning about their history at the Sapporo Beer Museum.
