    • Winter Clothing For Sapporo.

      by crvkumar Online Now Nov 4, 2013 at 4:16 PM

      Hi All,

      I am going to visit Sapporo during the snow festival and I was wondering what kind of clothes would be required to visit Sapporo. I am from India ( and a hot city from South) and currently live in Tokyo and I was planning to get a couple of Uniqlo Ultra Light Down for this Winter.( Its damn light)

      But I am not sure whether this will be enough for the Sapporo Climate. I am going to layer myself but still, will it be enough to hold up the heat? Any other recommendations_

      Reserved seat on Hamanasu train

      by milliturtle Online Now Mar 5, 2012 at 7:40 PM

      Hi, I'm hoping to take the Hamanasu night train from Sapporo to Aomori. I understand that I can try to reserve a seat in the Carpet car or Dream car without incurring extra charges if I have a JR Pass. The problem is that we only arrive in Japan about 3 days before this leg of the trip.

      Do you know how difficult it is to reserve those types of seats for a Monday night in mid May? Do you think we'll have trouble getting a reserved seat if we only reserve 3 days in advance? If those seats are not available, is it usually easy to get a regular seat?

      A weekend is enough? What to do/see/where to go?

      by sheherezad Online Now Jul 14, 2011 at 8:20 PM

      I'm finalising my plans to attend a conference in Sapporo in September and should only have a day or two afterwards to see anything other than the 'walking tour' of Sapporo the conference is organising midweek.

      I would appreciate some advice on whether that is enough to see anything outside of Sapporo? What I can do/see and where I can go on a day trip? Or if I need to get out of Sapporo at all? I heard about the Ainu (?) people? Can I go to where they are on a day trip and does it require an organised trip or can I do it by myself? Will language be a problem since I don't speak Japanese other than the basic greetings!

      Ground transportation from CTS

      by sheherezad Online Now Jul 14, 2011 at 8:14 PM

      I should be arriving in Sapporo (CTS) on September 10 at either 10.55am or 4.25pm (depending on which flight I manage to get from NRT) with at least 2 pieces of baggage (a large suitcase and a hand baggage) or with the 3 pieces of baggage I travelled into Canada with (one large suitcase and 2 hand baggage sized smaller pieces).

      Though all are on wheels, I have only one pair of hands and can drag only two at a time! ;-) So, I need some form of convenient ground transportation to a hotel in town (which I have yet to select/book).

      Appreciate information on all possible options and possible costs. Thank you! :-)

      If my brain serves me right the winter olympics were first held in japan in 1972 in Sapporo.

      From any Olympics games it leaves venues for future generations and Olympics fans to visit.

      I was wondering if anyone has ever visited any olympic sights in Sapporo or if anyone knows any websites with some more information?

      Or have they all be pulled down meaning i should visit Nagano.
