Sapporo is situated in the north island of Hokkaido. Until recent years the island was mostly inhabited and this is why it still maintains its local appearance. Wide forests and snowy landscape characterize the region, winters are cold and during summers you can feel a cold mountain breeze. For centuries the native civilization, Ainu, has populated the island and today it still remains a fascinating place.

Hokkaido’s dialect is the same of Kansai and Okinawa and it’s unique, with its musical pronunciation being to a sensitive ear very different from the rest of the country. The largest city is Sapporo, famous for the Snow Festival held every year showing off some fantastic sculptures. Between a bath immersed in onsen and Japan’s best sushi, Sapporo is a city to discover.
