The Hokkaido Shrine is perfect to take a step closer to the spiritual side of Sapporo. The beautiful shrine was built in 1869 and is a highlight during the Sapporo Matsuri Festival held in June. The minimalistic architecture of the shrine and its traditional design are akin to travelling back in time.
The nearby greenery is loved for bird-watching and simply enjoying the calm ambience of the place. Watching the cherry blossoms here in spring is an absolute must while its snow covered terrain during winters is just as charming!
