Sapporo (札幌) is the fifth-largest city in Japan by population, and the largest city on the island of Hokkaido. It is the capital of Hokkaidō Prefecture. Sapporo is known outside Japan for hosting the 1972 Winter Olympics, the first ever held in Asia, and for the annual Yuki Matsuri in the city, internationally referred to as the Sapporo Snow Festival, which draws more than 2 million tourists from around the world. The city is also home to Sapporo Brewery and the famous white chocolate biscuits White Lovers (白い恋人) exclusively sold in Hokkaido [ref]. Below the pictures I took in Sapporo including some photos of the Sapporo Beer Garden and Museum and the Historical Village of Hokkaido !
