City of Sapporo

With the fifth highest population of any city in Japan, Sapporo is the economic and political center of Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island.

Even among Japan, Sapporo stands out for its magnificent seasonal beauty. Long winters bring about six meters of yearly snowfall, and summers are comfortable, with less humidity and cooler temperatures than other regions of Japan. In any season, Sapporo's wonderful climate provides visitors with a pleasant stay.

Sapporo is very accessible for convention participants as several international and domestic air routes are directly connected to New Chitose Airport. Connecting flights via Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya within the same day to Sapporo are available for many major international flights.
