Hokkaido's capital city of Sapporo retains a unique mixture of modern Japanese efficiency and technology with a more relaxed approach to daily life influenced by the environment and climate making any visit a pleasant change from the frenetic pace of other major centers in the country.
Drawing its name from the indigenous Ainu terminology meaning "river-lined-with-large-reed-bed", Sapporo was officially founded in 1869 very early in Japan's Meiji Era.
Designed on a grid pattern and boasting several train and subway lines and even a tram line, Sapporo is one of Japan's easiest cities to travel in.
Adding to this distinctiveness, Sapporo is spared a rainy season, unlike the rest of Japan. A mild spring, pleasant summer, cool autumn and snowy winter characterize a year in Sapporo.

Ski Season generally starts in mid-December and can last as long as late April!
