1Sapporo Beer Museum
The Sapporo Beer Museum is run by the Sapporo Beer, one of the most popular beer brands in Japan. In the early Meiji period (late 19th century), Sapporo Beer was born through the introduction of the government’s development bureau that was aiming to create a modern Japan. At the museum, you can also learn about the history of the leading beer companies of the modern period. Some exhibitions are free, while others are paid. You can also enjoy tasting for a fee. Please note that the drinking age in Japan is 20 and your age will be checked. Under aged visitors and people who do not drink can choose a soft drink instead.
2Odori Koen Park
Odori Koen Park is a popular location where Sapporo citizens gather for lunch and leisurely walks. It is an oasis where you can enjoy the four seasons through the changes of the trees and flowers. It is also one of Hokkaido’s most popular event spaces. Although it is called a park, it is actually a boulevard that was built in 1871 as a way of separating the northern and southern parts of the city as a precautionary measure against spreading fires.
3Nikka Whiskey Yoichi Distillery
Nikka Whiskey Yoichi Distillery of Hokkaido prefecture has managed to distinguish itself as a top of the line producer of whiskey by clinging to its rich history and production process. Being the father of Japanese whiskey, the company's founder studied the process in Scotland for several years before bringing it back to Japan and setting up a distillery. In Hokkaido, with its rich wheat fields and brisker weather, is where he set up his own distillery which remains to this day. By continuing to use traditional Scottish techniques, like the use of coal fired pot stills, oak barrels, and old copper distilleries, the Nikka brand manages to produce World-Whiskey-Award winning blended malts.
