Let's go to the Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium first by subway and bus (330 yen). There you can go up to the top of the jump hill by lift. Looking down from the top, you can imagine the thrill and excitement of ski jumping. Sapporo Winter Sports Museum (entrance fee: 600 yen) is at the foot of the jump hill where you can experience various winter sports using simulators.
Next we take a taxi to the Hokkaido Shrine (about 1000 yen) which has been the center of Shinto worship in Hokkaido since 1869. Even today, it is closely related to people's everyday lives. If you are lucky, you might be able to see a Shinto-style wedding or some local events.
We go back to the city center by subway (250 yen) and have lunch. Nijo Market is a good place to have seafood lunch, but if you have other preferences, I can recommend some other places as well. Nijo Market is also a nice place to buy souvenirs such as marine products and farm produce.
After enjoying lunch, let's stroll around the city center. Odori Park, the Clock Tower (entrance fee: 200 yen) and the Former Hokkaido Government Office are close to each other. These are must-see places in Sapporo.
If you have only a half day, I can make a half- day tour. You can choose places of your interests or I can arrange a tour for you.
We had great day with Yumiko notwithstanding a morning of heavy rain. Yumiko has a wonderful knowledge of Sapporo and its history. She was able to not just show us the sights of the city but also the story behind them. We had the good fortune to see summer ski jumping at the Olympic ski jump and also a traditional Japanese wedding at the Hokkaido Shire and a summer street event. All unexpected and all great. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Yumiko.
We had an enjoyable day with Yumiko visiting the Historic Village and Hokkaido Shrine. She is very knowledgeable and we learned about Hokkaido's past. We also asked about Japan's train, subway & bus system and so many other topics. Yumiko's English is great so we were able to understand each other. Thank you Yumiko!
Yumiko was my guide for two days in Hokaido. She was absolutely fantastic. She was informative, knowledgeable, punctual and friendly. The first day we went hiking up a mountain in Minami-Ku, Sapporo. The panoramic view at the top of the mountain was awesome. The trail was covered with tall trees and the music of birds and insects was amazing. After the hike we walked to an onsen(hot springs) and enjoyed the delicious Japanese style lunch. After lunch we went to the onsen to relax. Next to the onsen we took a tour of the Ainu Museum which Yumiko was very knowledgeable. The second day she took me to the breakwater in Sapporo for fishing. This was the first for me in Japan and I enjoyed the ocean air. I even caught fish. We ate lunch at a fish market restaurant and I had a delicious seafood Japanese style lunch. We headed to Otaru to tour a sake factory and Yumiko explained how sake was made. I had a great time with my guide in Hokaido. I highly recommend Yumiko on your next trip to Hokaido. I definitely plan to return to Hokaido. Thank you Yumiko for the "Omotenashi" Roy Hawaii
