Sapporo Convention Bureau (Hokkaido, Japan)
The capital of the northern island, prefecture of Hokkaido and the fifth-largest city in Japan, Sapporo, gained international prominence when it was chosen as the host of the 1972 Winter Olympic Games. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength, successfully hosting FIFA World Cup 2002, and is about to welcome another crowd this September for Rugby World Cup Japan 2019.

Home to some of Japan’s top universities and research institutions, such as Hokkaido University, this special Japanese city (over 60% of which is covered by greenery and 7 meters of snow for the period of 130 days a year) has many assets up its sleeves, starting with a wealth of knowledge in many areas of endeavors, as well as the facilities you can expect in a fast-growing environment.

When it comes to access, in addition to multiple direct routes within Asia-Pacific and the new Helsinki-Sapporo route, Sapporo offers a convenient access via Tokyo with over 70 flights per day that clock in at only 1.5 hours.

Besides the wealth of natural surroundings, Sapporo also boasts an overwhelming food sufficiency rate of 208%, which is five times more than Japan’s national average, giving the destination its brand value and reputation as Japan’s Gourmet Capital, in addition to being the birthplace of the namesake beer.

Finnair to launch direct flight to Sapporo

Flying from Europe to Hokkaido is about to become easier than ever, with Finnair announcing a new Helsinki - Sapporo route to be launched in December 2019.

Finnair will fly the new route from December 15, 2019 until March 27, 2020. The new non-stop service will take approximately 9 hours, reducing the travel time by at least three hours.

The new flight route will make it a breeze to connect to Hokkaido via any major city in Europe. Departing flights will leave Helsinki on Thursday and Sunday evenings and arrive in Sapporo the morning of the following day, while the return flights will leave the Hokkaido capital on Monday and Friday mornings, arriving back in Helsinki in the afternoon on the same day.

Travelers will be able to explore Northern Japan just in time for its white season, with the Sapporo Snow Festival, onsen hot springs, seafood, and the renowned Sapporo beer to top off the trip.

With the Rugby World Cup also set to hit Sapporo this fall, Hokkaido is shaping up to be a new bucket list destination for European travelers in 2019.
