Four Star Sapporo hotels

You may come to Sapporo for its fabulous skiing or the icy artworks of its annual Snow Festival, but you might be tempted to stay for the food. The capital of Hokkaido—the northernmost of Japan's main islands—is well-known as the birthplace of miso ramen. It's also famed for its seafood restaurants, serving delectable “hairy crab” and the freshest sushi in Japan. Not forgetting its parks, gardens and surrounding mountains, making this modern city a pleasant, as well as fascinating place to stay.

Things to see in Sapporo

The green ribbon of Odori Park lies at the heart of Sapporo's cultural life. In the summer, its tree-lined avenues host festivals dedicated to dancing or lilac flowers. Winter sees the Yuki Matsuri (Snow Festival) take over the park. Its stunning ice palaces and snow sculptures bring in nearly 2 million people every February. More permanent works of art are found at the Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art, noted for its striking collection of glass. An open air museum at Hokkaido Pioneer Village shows what life was like before this city sprang up nearly 150 years ago. To truly appreciate its intriguing American-planned origins, try climbing the brightly-lit Sapporo TV Tower. It's almost an exact copy of the Eiffel tower and has a superb vantage point. Or head up Moiwa Mountain, a natural setting for some lovely views back onto the city, day and night.

4-star hotels in Sapporo

When looking for four-star hotels in Sapporo, expect a great deal of choice, both in terms of style and accommodation. Make the most of the mod-cons in a contemporary city hotel, with fast WiFi, latest entertainment technology and stylish bars and restaurants. Or you could opt for a more traditional stay-over in a ryokan (traditional inn), sleeping on a futon in a simple-yet-elegant guest room. Or there is the indulgent experience of doing spas the Japanese way, at one of the many four-star hotels in Sapporo's hot spring resorts.

Where to stay in Sapporo

Some of the most conveniently located 4-star hotels in Sapporo lie next to the main train station. Close to downtown attractions, from here you can stroll to Odori Park in a couple of minutes. You'll find another cluster of four-star hotels in Sapporo's Minami Jonashi district. Next door is the pretty Nakajima Park, home to Japan's oldest-known wooden hotel, now a wedding venue. Head out of spa town to Jozankei Onsen, and you'll discover that Sapporo’s four-star hotels can have breathtaking views too. Here, in the shadow of Mt. Moiwa, you can take advantage of the town's fabulous spa facilities.

How to get to Sapporo

If you're planning to travel to Sapporo, you're most likely to arrive at Hokkaido's main airport of New Chitose Airport. This is some 20 miles south of Sapporo. Some international flights arrive here directly, but most connect via Tokyo. From here, a regular train service will get you into central Sapporo in less than 45 minutes. The much closer Okadama Airport is only for domestic flights around Hakkaido. The city's subway system is definitely the best way to get around town, with further-flung locations easily accessed by train.
