Sapporo is the capital of Hokkaido, the northernmost prefecture of Japan. Located in the splendid central region of the island, this fifth city of the country is relatively new. Its full development began in 1869, when the Japanese government established an Office for the colonization of Hokkaido. Unlike other major cities in Japan, it is a very green city, thanks to its many parks. As it happens in European cities, the streets are identified and numbered in a linear way. Life in Sapporo is a unique experience and the atmosphere of the city is more reminiscent of the pioneering spirit than the roots of centuries of tradition.
