Sapporo is the largest city in Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost prefecture, but most people might recognise it as the home of Japan’s oldest beer brand. It’s one of Japan’s youngest cities, with 1868 recognised as its official birth year and a population of just 7 people in 1857.

Sapporo came to the world’s attention when it hosted the 1972 Winter Olympics and is now famous for its beer, ramen and its annual snow festival, which first began in 1950. If you enjoy the outdoors, like the idea of living in a young city and don’t mind the cold, then Sapporo could be the place for you.
