The world-famous winter resort of Sapporo is located in the southwestern part of the second largest island in Japan — Hokkaido. It comfortably lies on a plain in the valley of the Ishikari and Toyohira Rivers, protected from the winds by low mountain ranges. Despite its youth, in terms of population, Sapporo ranks fifth in the country. The city has a lot of greenery, parks, and the mountains, surrounding it that are amazingly good at any time of the year. But the main thing is the unique natural conditions of this part of Hokkaido. They create the richest opportunities for winter sports. For this reason, a huge number of skiers and snowboarders come here every year — professionals and amateurs. Besides, thermal springs are located near Sapporo, which turns it into a health resort.
