Sapporo Weather

Sapporo Weather Forecast 札幌の天気

Sapporo, situated on Japan's northern island of Hokkaido, has a markedly different climate to other major cities on the larger island of Honshu to the south.

Sapporo escapes the high heat and humidity of such places as Tokyo and Osaka and many Japanese holiday-makers flock to Hokkaido's higher latitudes in the summer for walking, hiking and sports.

The annual rainy season (tsuyu) in June and July also does not reach as far north as Sapporo in Hokkaido.

However, winters are long and cold with heavy snowfall again drawing visitors for Sapporo's famous Snow Festival and international class ski resorts.
