Sapporo is the capital and largest city on the northern island of Hokkaido, Japan. It's a relatively new city that dates back to 1857. Today it has a population of almost two million and it has impressive wide boulevards and a beautiful snow covered setting in the winter. Being a relatively "new" city in Japan, Sapporo has little in the way of traditional architecture, but it is a fun city to visit. In particular, people like to visit Sapporo during the Sapporo Snow Festival. This is the city's largest event and it is famous for its ice sculpture competition. The festival is centered around Odori Koen, which is in the center of town.

There are a handful of hostels around Sapporo. Although many hostels in the city aren't as social as you'd find elsewhere in Japan, they still provide an affordable and comfortable place to stay for budget travelers.
