Sapporo White Illumination

Free

This winter light-up takes place at five different locations including Odori Park, Sapporo Eki-mae Dori and Minami 1-Jo Dori.

All locations switch on the lights on November 22nd, but while Odori Park finishes on Christmas day, Sapporo Station continues until Feb 11th and the remainder end on March 15th.

Access

A long stretch of park headed by the Sappporo TV Tower, the main venue of Odori Park is close to Sapporo Station. While Nishi Hatchome Station is closer, it is only served by the Sapporo Shiden line. Getting to Sapporo from Tokyo is easy – we have some tips on the journey here.

Accommodation

Offering some of the best prices for clean, modern dorm spots, the Stay Sapporo Hostel has prices starting at under ¥2,000. Part hostel part hotel, Grids Sapporo is a popular spot offering bunks in dorms or smart hotel-like rooms – including very reasonable singles. Close to Odori Park, the Sapporo View Hotel is in a great location with modern and surprisingly spacious rooms.
