Explore Hokkaido’s top town with our new guide to Sapporo

Posted at 11:42 am, September 1, 2015 in Around Town

Already featuring more than a dozen guides pointing out the best things to do and places to see in and around Tokyo, our super-popular map series is now taking a step into the unknown: travelling all the way up to Hokkaido, we’ve teamed up with the city of Sapporo, Hokkaido University and a number of other partners to bring you 50 things to do in Sapporo. On shelf from September 4, it’s your ultimate guide to a historical city perhaps best known for its signature beer and as the host of the 1972 Winter Olympics.

Available in both English and Japanese, 50 things to do in Sapporo takes you beyond tired tourist traps and obvious sightseeing spots, allowing you to experience the city like a local. Relying on insider tips from Sapporo City employees and students, teachers and staff at Hokkaido University, we’ve picked out 50 top sights, restaurants, bars, shops and more, inviting you to slurp local ramen, bite into tender lamb, explore some seriously offbeat attractions and so on. Reachable in around 90 minutes by plane from Tokyo, Sapporo’s got far more going for it than you know – pick up our free guide and start planning your trip right away.

50 things to do in Sapporo will be distributed at tourist info centres and hotels in Sapporo, as well as at Tokyo airports and our very own Time Out Café & Diner in Ebisu. Get your copy from September 4.


On the map page, Miyanosawa Station is erroneously labelled as ‘Soen Sta.’. Apologies for the mistake.
