Visit Japan’s snowy paradise Sapporo

From December 2019 onward Finnair flies on Thursdays and Sundays direct from Helsinki to the capital of the northern Hokkaido prefecture, Sapporo. Helsinki Airport is compact and relaxed so catching a connecting flight there is convenient and fast.  

Sapporo is a fantastic travel destination where you can combine skiing, spa and Japanese culture without bustling crowds of the country’s other cities. One of the highlights of the year is the annual Sapporo Snow Festival, where you can admire snow sculptures and enjoy winter ambience. Thanks to the area’s rich snowfall in winter, Sapporo is also famous for the possibilities of winter sports. There are indeed many ski resorts, largest one being Sapporo Teine Ski Resort. This resort suits both for beginners and more advanced ski lovers and has beautiful views over the city.  

However, skiing isn't the only activity that you should have on your Sapporo-bucket list. After different winter activities, a day or two relaxing in a spa is what your body and mind desire. You can find several hot springs both in the city centre of Sapporo and the villages nearby. A break in a bathtub filled with hot spring water and surrounded by beautiful nature is an excellent way to loosen up and enjoy a carefree holiday. 

And of course, a visit to Japan is nothing without culinary experiences. Sapporo is the home place of miso ramen, so we highly recommend you taste one with some Japanese dumplings. To explore a large variety of restaurants, bars and nightlife, you can head for the lively district called Susukino
