Looking to visit key attractions in Sapporo and the top spots for pictures to post on Instagram? Here are four such places where you can enjoy the best of both!
Ganso Ramen Yokocho
Chances are, you recognise the word “ramen” from the name of this attraction which is exactly what you will find at this spot which is also the birthplace of miso ramen! Known as Ramen Ally, it is home to 17 restaurants and the narrow alley with shops on both sides and lanterns above make for great shots.
Centennial Memorial Tower
Built for centennial celebrations, the Centennial Memorial Tower is 100 metres in height and Lord of the Rings fans may be reminded of the Tower of Sauron! For those based in Otaru, accommodation options the likes of Grand Park Otaru are ideal for excursions to this site set amidst a lovely park area.
Sapporo Art Park
A perfect spot for Instagrammers is the Sapporo Art Park home to all manner of fascinating creations; you can spend time exploring the Sapporo Sculpture Garden featuring works by local and international artists. Highlights include the “Isu ni Natte Yasumou” sculpture featuring yellow figures sitting on each other’s laps!
Providing breathtaking panoramas over Sapporo and Ishikari Bay, Mount Moiwa is another favourite for photographers, especially at night. The observation deck at its summit can be reached by cable car; here, you will also find the Bell of Happiness which is popular amongst couples and is Instagram-worthy too!
