Ganso Sapporo Ramen Yokocho Area

  • A holy ground for ramen lovers since 1951
  • Sapporo is incredibly well known for its miso ramen, so much so that miso ramen is known simply as “Sapporo ramen” elsewhere in Japan. The legend of this ramen is said to have begun in this yokocho, a small area that started out with only 8 shops and was named Koyaku Ramen Street originally. Since then, it has more than doubled in size, becoming incredibly popular with domestic and international tourists alike.

Hokkaido University Gingko and Poplar Avenues

  • Hokkaido University’s renowned natural beauty
  • One of Hokkaido University’s claims to fame is its avenue flanked either side by a 380-meter long row of Gingko trees that create a stunning tunnel of yellow leaves from late October to early November. In 1912, forestry students at the university added an 80-meter long avenue of poplar trees as part of their studies, and this has become yet another famous sight on campus.
