A walk around Sapporo city - Hokkaido

Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan
3 Kudos
Sapporo city was home base for our Hokkaido trip. It served as the hub to catch buses and rails to neighboring towns and cities, like Jozankei, Otaru, and Niseko. It's only right that we look around Sapporo city as well. From Sapporo station, most of the landmarks and places to visit are walking distance, which is wonderful! We were able to visit nijo fish market, this shopping alleyways you see in most major cities in Japan, and a few amazing eateries. One of our favorite restaurants was sauge+, a soup curry place, which was on the same block as Susukino, a popular shopping district and where most of the snow festival sculptures were getting carved. If you've fully explored Tokyo Osaka and the like, I would recommend not spending too much time within Sapporo city. It's beautiful in its own right, but very similar as well.
