Sapporo: Private and Personalized Eat Like a Local Tour

3. Sapporo: Private and Personalized Eat Like a Local Tour

Get to know Sapporo in the best way: through its food. Join a local host to feast your way around the city together, and sample 6-8 tastings of various local food specialties carefully selected for you. Benefit from the personal touch of a private tour and a flexible itinerary allowing you to change your mind about what you want to do during the experience. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. From Hokkaido’s regional miso ramen (always yummier with a plate of gyoza on the side) to treats which may surprise you like soft serve ice-cream and Hokkaido cheese, you’ll discover how, what, and where the locals eat. Immerse yourself in Sapporo's unique culinary culture and probably find your new favorite dish along the way. Slurp soup curry (it’s good manners, don’t worry), a dish that was born in the city. Try kaisen don, a bowl of fresh, raw seafood on a bed of fluffy white rice. Set free your inner chef as you grill your own meat on a convex skillet at a classic Jingisukan BBQ restaurant — the ultimate soul food. Enjoy lush parks and shrines, and sample some of the city’s famous beer at the Sapporo Beer Museum. Cleanse your palette by indulging in a sake too, if you like. You might just be crawling back to your accommodation after all of that food.

From Sapporo: Private Day Trip to Otaru

Explore the old port town of Otaru on your own personalized private tour, leaving from nearby Sapporo with your knowledgeable guide. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Hop on a train to Otaru, 30 minutes northwest of Sapporo, where you’ll see a side to Japanese history vastly different from the temples and shrines you’d expect. Discover Japanese colonial architecture, old port markets, and steam clocks. The small harbor city of Otaru seems like a relic from a bygone era, you’ll get to explore this fascinating pocket of Japanese history. See the perfectly preserved western-style buildings of Sakaimachi-dōri, an old merchant street harking back to Otaru’s late 19th-century history as a powerful port city. Swivel your head between elegant buildings on Nichigin-dōri, the old “Wall Street of the North”, just around the corner. Stroll along the cobbled pathways of the pretty canal along Ishikari Bay, an old-world promenade illuminated by the golden glow of oil lamps in the early evening. See how it's lined with old warehouses converted into antique stores and cafes, or hop on a canal cruise for a different vantage point. Discover the city’s famous glass-blowing industry and shop for intricate souvenirs, or see the Otaru Music Box Museum’s collection of 25,000 music boxes (or customize your own brand-new one). If you are brave enough, try the squid ink ice-cream and grab a bite to eat. You could enjoy freshly brewed draft beer at the Bavarian-style Otaru Brewery beer hall or sample sake at the Tanaka Sake Brewery before heading back to Sapporo.

Pocket router is a great thing! Connected always and everywhere! Sustainable communication even in the subway, I recommend it to everyone! Delivered to the hotel, the guys from the reception from there sent, thank you all!

Definitely worth it and also absolutely necessary because some don't speak English or often look through maps themselves for where and how they're going

Asuka was a wonderful guide, very helpful and provided a great selection of activities which I enjoyed very much.

Perfect way to stay connected. Very easy and conveniant. If the could deliver to the hotel it would be perfect!

Recommended, you can have Internet to guide you where you want to go.
