Undeniably one of Japan’s national treasures, Sapporo is an enchanting place just outside Hokkaido. Beyond the Winter Festival which is a must to go to, there are also other things to discover — their stunning landmarks scattered all throughout the region, authentic Japanese curry, and the well-known Sapporo Beer. Definitely an Instagrammable place worthy of checking off your bucket list. If you’re planning a trip there this Spring, Philippine Airlines shared the following shot list with The Manila Times to post from the hottest picturesque spots in Japan’s hidden wonder.
‘The time traveler.’ A piece of history frozen in time, explore Noboribetsu Date Jidaimura’s Edo period temples and houses. Try to spot the samurais, ninjas, and geishas scattered throughout the village.
‘The cable car cutie.’ Go up Mt. Usu in the most scenic way possible. Ride a cable car to the volcano’s summit and enjoy a panoramic view of Lake Toya, Toya Caldera, and the Usu Volcano Global Geopark.
‘The by-the-lake look.’ Once you get back down from the summit, you can take a relaxing walk along the coastline of Lake Toya or follow the trails leading to the other vantage points of the island.
‘The neat shot.’ See how Nikka Whisky is made by visiting its distillery. Observe age-old traditions performed by skilled craftsmen as they create the perfect whisky. So grab yourself a glass, pour yourself some Yoichi Single Malt, and smile!
‘The sweet tooth.’ Discover the European architecture inspired landmark, Shiroi Koibito, tucked away in the heart of the city. It’s a chocolate park as well, so try making your own Shiroi Koibito cookies.
