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. Other events happen annually in Sapporo, including a summer beer festival and a lilac celebration in the spring. Although relatively new and not known for its historic attractions, the city's broad tree-lined boulevards, lush parks, ski resorts, and vibrant nightlife make up for its lack of heritage. A Sapporo itinerary should include its famous beer gardens, landmark buildings, and local delicacies such as miso ramen and "white sweethearts," a type of chocolate biscuit. Add Sapporo and other Japan destinations to your travel plans using our Japan driving holiday site.
