Japan will allow the entry of foreign nationals who need to move to Japan to study, work or join their family, subject to necessary visa requirements.

Best Time to Fly to Sapporo

Most travelers would argue that the best time to visit this region of the world is during the summer months of June to August, to make the most of the warm weather. Travel during this time is likely to be more expensive than during off-peak seasons, though. In more recent years, Sapporo has become home to some exciting winter activities and vibrant festivals that make the most of the snow and ice of these cold months. If you do visit during the winter, make sure to wrap up warm and get some non-skid shoes and special snow tyres for the car (these can be bought in the city) to help you through the beautiful but sometimes challenging weather conditions.

Getting around Sapporo

Sapporo is incredibly easy to explore on foot: it has a rectangular layout and blocks named and numbered according to compass points. So if you like, you can see most of the main sights as a pedestrian. However, there is also an efficient public bus service you can use, as well as several specialist tour bus operators. This city also has metro service of three lines which will get you to your destination in no time by taking a more direct route than walking might.
