Sapporo is not just a gateway to Hokkaido’s hot springs and mountains, but a famous city, popular for its beer, food, and the spectacular winter festival. It will be a great idea to travel during winter when entire Japan covers itself under the blanket of snow, and Sapporo remains a bit different. Skiing is the chief attraction for adventure lovers. The main station for skiing includes toboggans, poles, and a clatter of skis, and the people look stylish in their simple quilted down coats. The Sapporo Snow festival happens in Odori Park, and the city transforms into a cavalcade of ice sculptures. The ice sculptors come from all across the world to create the masterpieces.
You cannot afford to miss the famous Japanese noodle dish- ramen, once you are in Sapporo. In the south, Fukuoka is a famous place for the tonkatsu pork broth ramen. You can get the miso-based version at Sapporo. The Japan sapporo tours will give you the opportunity to head straight to the Ramen Alley, which is a narrow street with some of the oldest serving diners. You can also try the legendary miso ramen of Daiko near the Tanukikoji Station, and the taste is the same for years since 1966. The hairy crab is also a specialty dish, along with kegani, a signature Japanese dish.
Sapporo beer has been quenching the thirst of the Japanese and the millions of travelers every year. Rice is the major ingredient, and the beer is clean, crisp, and sweeter than the rest of the Japanese beers. And it is also healthy as it contains a high level of Vitamin A and protein. The locals always suggest that it is good for the heart. You will have a lesser chance of suffering from heart attacks. And the chances of developing stones in the kidney will be lesser too. The Sapporo Beer Museum is a must-visit place.
