Sapporo makes its Olympic comeback

Odori Park, Sapporo

Next year, 48 years after hosting the Winter Olympics, the city of Sapporo will host the Olympic marathon and race-walking events. The decision to move these Tokyo 2020 events from the city centre to the cooler climate of Sapporo, was taken in the interest of the athletes’ safety.

With Sapporo being 5 to 6 degrees cooler than Tokyo, the move is a wise one, especially after the unfortunate heat-related incidents at the World Championships in Doha earlier this year.

Residents of Sapporo are in for a treat, as spectators get to witness these events free of charge. The city will also host the football games at Sapporo Dome.

With our plans for 2020 well underway, we’ve already secured over 150 rooms in Sapporo and are ready to accept bookings. All the hotels are located in downtown Sapporo, where the best entertainment area with lots of bars and restaurants, is situated. Contact us today to avoid disappointment.
