This bus is compatible with multilingual audio system in Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean, will take you to some of Sapporo’s famous highlights in a short amount of time.
First we will head to Sapporo Wholesale Market, the kitchen of Hokkaido and the north. When we arrive, you will have free time to explore the outdoor market where over 71 vendors crowd together, selling the finest seafood and produce at great prices. Enjoy the face to face communication and excitement of the market as the owners energetically call out to customers.
Next we will see the Hokkaido Shrine, which is located in the western part of the central city. A deeply forested ground of the shrine and its front guard gate create a sacred atmosphere. After the shrine, we will visit Ishiya Shiroi Koibito Park, which was set up as an annex to the chocolate factory. Take the family to the chocolate factory and enjoy the collection of chocolate cups from the nineteenth century and see the process of the much-loved cookies ‘Shiroi Koibito’. (Depending on the season, some areas of the facility may not be open for viewing.) Enjoying the lasting impression and smell of chocolate, we will head for the Sapporo Clock Tower for those who wish to alight.
