Visit with your children and experience being a child again
One of the attraction of Sapporo is the abundance of nature close to the city. There are many facilities where children can enjoy themselves. Making butter and using the ski jump are unique experiences only available in Sapporo.
Takino Suzuran Hillside National Park prides itself on its environmental education programs by incorporating play equipment that take advantage of nature and offering guided tours through their forests. Visitors can experience making butter and sausage at Sapporo Satoland, an agricultural theme park. The play equipment at the neighboring Moerenuma Park were created by Isamu Noguchi. It is a perfect place to take pictures of children playing on unique-looking objects. The twin polar bears are the attraction at Sapporo Maruyama Zoo. San Piazza Aquarium is a popular destination for kids alongside the Sapporo Science Center. When you take a pair lift to the peak at the Okurayama Jump Stadium, you will be surprised by its steepness. Visitors can also experience jumping off the springboard or trying to do a turn while skating at the Sapporo Olympic Museum located at the bottom of the mountain. You are sure to gain firsthand experience of winter sports here.
