Okay, so Sapporo is not all about eating and drinking, although we’d like to think it is. There’s culture and sightseeing, as well. We had a whirlwind tour of Sapporo’s highlights with some Japanese bloggers, who took us to a shrine (of course), the Olympic Winter Sports Museum, and to lunch. If you visit Sapporo, here are some things you may want to do and see:
Sightseeing Sapporo (1 of 28)
As with other Hawaiian Airlines inaugural flights, they arrange for a day tour for the media. In this case, there were only a few of us from Hawaii on this tour, so some local bloggers took us around in taxis. First stop, Hokkaido Jingu Shrine, a Shinto shrine.
The Olympic Winter Sports Museum is home to Sapporo’s famous ski jump. If you go, make sure you take the ski lift up so you can get this view.
