4-hour Shiroi Koibito Park、”Hokkaido Shrine” and Central Wholesale Market Bus Tour


This course is operated with a multilingual audio system that provides explanations in Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean. All of the sights will be introduced within a short time. First we will visit the “Hokkaido Jingu Shrine” which is situated slightly to the west of Central Sapporo. The sacred grounds of the shrine are embraced by lush greenery, and as you enter through the gate, the main shrine comes into view.
After leaving Hokkaido Jingu shrine, the bus will head for Mt. Okura Ski Jump Stadium. The ski jump stadium here is said to be the prince of all sports. It is said that the Baron Okura Kishichro heard the voice of the late Chichibu Prince, and commissioned the architectural design of the ski jump to Major General Olaf Helset of Norway. Numerous competitions have been held here and have contributed to the nurturing of many athletes. However, the ski jump was renovated in 1970 in preparation for the Winter Olympics which were to be held two years later, and became the stage for the 11th Sapporo Winter Olympics 90-meter ski jump venue. From the observation deck located at an elevation of 307 meters, the approach to the jump (runway), and the entire city of Sapporo and Ishikari Plains can be seen.
Once we leave the Mt. Okura Ski Jump Stadium, we will head to the Shiroi Koibito Park. At the Shiroi Koibito Park, you will be able to view the production line of the “chocolate factory,” the “tudor houses” of medieval Great Britain, and much more. This is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Sapporo. During the summer, English and old roses bloom ceaselessly inside the Rose Garden. There are over 2200 roses comprised of 300 varieties of roses that bloom at once, enveloping the area in a sweet aroma. Next door is the “Miyanosawa Shiroi Koibito Soccer Field,” home field of the Sapporo Consadole Soccer Team, and visitors can sneak peeks of their practice, or check out the “Consadole Sapporo Collection House.” After our visit at Shiroi Koibito Park, we will go to the Central Sapporo Wholesale Market.

The Sapporo Central Wholesale Market is the kitchen of Sapporo, where fresh vegetables, fruits, meat, crabs, and other fresh seafood can be purchased. There are also a number of restaurants to choose from that offer gourmet seafood bowls, fresh grilled fish combos, and much more, so this is where you will have free time to enjoy lunch. After you have filled your stomachs with great food and bought some souvenirs, we will stop by the Sapporo Clock Tower, an iconic tourist attraction of Sapporo. You can even get off here and sightsee downtown. This is a fulfilling course that takes you to a number of great attractions within a short amount of time.
