By Trick – on December 18th, 2013

Things to do this Saturday in Sapporo

Start your day off at Odori 11 chome and either watch or join the Hokkaido Little Santa Run which will be held
in Sapporo for the first time to help raise money for children in hospital. The run will be held from 11am till noon
and if you do want to participate, its 3000 yen entry for adults, 2000 yen for students and 1000 yen for children.
Santa suits will be provided! Next, take a walk through the Munich Christmas Market in Odori, a perfect way to inhale
some cheer and eat your weight in sugar-coated almonds. After that, make your way to Sapporo Factory and check
out the ridiculously bizarre Art Aquarium – over 5000 goldfish in 17 installations. The tanks are embellished with light
displays and futuristic designs but also retain traditional symbols of Japanese culture (read more). As well as having
one of the biggest Christmas Tree’s in Sapporo, Sapporo Factory also has its very own Christmas Projection Mapping
Show held every hour from 17:30 to 21:30. To end off the day why not take a ride up the Sapporo TV Tower, and
marvel at the White Illuminations on display in Odori Park.
