I don’t think that there’s other way to experience how breathtaking and magical Hokkaido is, unless you personally visit there yourself. Surely photos can never do any justice to my favourite country of all time since I was a little girl. Hokkaido is known for its beautiful nature, delicious food, fresh seafood, nothing but the best powder snow in the entire world. Was that too exaggerating? Nah. Japan was always beyond perfect!
Odori Park is the main street in the center of Sapporo, separating the city into north and south whereas the Clock Tower within the park is the symbol of Sapporo. There’s a lot of tourist taking pictures here, during winter there will be illumination and I’ll be back again during spring someday!
Search it up on google and you’ll know how gorgeous this place is during spring!
I guess the happiest part of the trip is actually having kani, if you’re a foodie like me. You have to experience how fresh the kani (crab) is in Hokkaido. I would say that it’s hard to have a bad meal in Japan.
Savouring Hokkaido’s exquisite crab dishes in Kani Shogun, nobody will miss the restaurant entrance. Just look for the giant crab sign! It took us quite awhile to queue for it, so it’s best if you can make a reservation beforehand.

I remembering seeing so many videos post on red panda from Maruyama Zoo and finally I’ve seen them upclose. I literally brace through the snow for them, it was so cold and worth it. Downside is that tons of animal enclosure is closed to public during winter. But my main motive was to see these cute little guys.
There’s a Maruyama Zoo over there, grab yourself a churros and soft serve cause soft serve ice-cream from Hokkaido is the best. But my favourite soft serve will be Creamia which is a premium soft serve which I think it’s the king of soft serve ice cream, it’s like Shiroi Koibito ice-cream version. My tastebuds was blown away the first time I had it, up till now I still couldn’t find any better soft-serve ice cream. True love?

Hokkaido is world renown for its fresh seafood, crabs, scallops, uni and much more, don’t leave without heading over to Nijo Market. Treat yourself with some oishii kani! I had Kani Uni Don and sashimi which melts in my mouth with that extra taste of fresh sweetness. I would totally go back to Sapporo for this!
