  • Temple / Shrine

One of the outstanding personalities of Sapporo sightseeing is its clear separation between its urban function and quiet nature. I believe that Hokkaido Jingu is one of the best places to feel the distinction.

Some Japanese say that less traditional lifestyle exists in Hokkaido compared with other region. The image is partly correct, yet it is notable, in Hokkaido establishment, many pioneers had kept their own spiritual background for the sustenance of their endeavour. One honourable person in that way is Yoshitake Shima, from Kyushu, who contributed so much to the development of Sapporo city. One can see the two statues of him; one in Sapporo City Hall, the other next to the main gate of Hokkaido Jingu.

To visit Hokkaido Jingu, subway is the best public transportation. Get the Tozai-line train off at Maruyama-koen, and walk westbound. It would take 10 minutes to see the first Torii, (arch-style gate for the entry for the Shinto shrine, and another 8-10 minutes to arrive at the main building. Please don't be concerned, however, the length of the time too much, as the process of walking itself, including the sound of gravel beneath your foot, is a part of praying. Just relax and feel the nature while walking.

Upon the entry, just follow the manner (there are good deals of information board on the proper behaviour) and keep your heart close to the memorial frontier spirit in Sapporo.
