School Location

Sapporo

Sapporo is the 4th largest city in Japan and is famous for the annual Sapporo Snow Festival, which attracts over 2 million tourists from all over the world. The city is also famous for seafood, ramen, and, of course, Sapporo beer! Being one of Japan’s newest cities by Japanese standards it lacks a lot of traditional architecture like Kyoto; however, it more than makes up for it with a ton of things that you can only find in Sapporo! Hokkaido’s untamed wilderness and national parks make up the majority of Japan’s largest prefecture. Due to its Northern location, you can escape Japan’s dreaded muggy summers and rainy season and enjoy a long winter ski season. If you enjoy a modern city in the middle of beautiful untouched nature, Hokkaido’s the place to be.
