How to Spend 2 Days in Sapporo

How to Spend 2 Days in Sapporo

With two days in Sapporo, there’s enough time to explore the city’s most famous highlights and also visit attractions just outside the metro area. From historic landmarks and bustling food markets to panoramic views and a lively nightlife scene, Hokkaido’s biggest city has lots to offer. Here are great ways to spend 48 hours in Sapporo. 

 

Day 1: Sapporo by Day and Night

**Morning:**Get your bearings with a sightseeing tour of Sapporo: Stroll around Odori Park and stop at the red-bricked Former Hokkaido Government Office Building and Sapporo Clock Tower. In winter, be sure to check out the Sapporo Snow Festival, also held at the park. End your morning at Sapporo TV Tower, where you can enjoy panoramic views from the observation deck.

 

**Afternoon:**Spend the afternoon at Sapporo Beer Museum, learning about the beer brewing process, as well as sampling freshly brewed Sapporo. Alternatively, chocolate lovers should head to Shiroi Koibito Park, a theme park that offers a tour of the Ishiya Chocolate Factory.


**Night:**Head to the lively Susukino district for an evening of dining, drinking, and revelry. Get an insider’s view by joining a small-group food and nightlife tour and discover hidden gems off the beaten path such as barbecue lamb restaurants and all-you-can-drink (nomihodai) bars.

 

Day 2: Otaru, Seafood, and Scenic Views

**Morning:**Hokkaido is known for its fresh seafood. Start your morning off at either the Central Wholesale Market or Nijo Market and try somekaisendon, a seafood dish popular for breakfast on the island. Afterwards, head out of Sapporo to explore the historic port town of Otaru, which is about 40 minutes away by train. Climb the 123 steps to Suitengu Shrine for lovely panoramic views.

 

**Afternoon:**For lunch, grab more seafood at Sankaku Market. Otaru is famous for sweets, so be sure to try some double cheesecake or soft serve ice cream for dessert. Afterwards, walk along beautiful Otaru Canal and browse the shops along Sakaimachi Street; don’t miss the stores devoted to music boxes or glass works, both famous local products.

 

**Night:**Take the train back to Sapporo for your final night, and head up the ropeway to Mt. Moiwa to enjoy sunset and nighttime views, some of the best of the city. There’s a restaurant on top of Mt. Moiwa where you can enjoy a romantic meal. Alternatively, head back to Susukino and Sapporo Ramen Yokocho to try some miso ramen, said to have originated here.
