A fun way to learn more about ancient Hokkaido

  • Historic / Cultural Experiences

Even in our digital era, many locals still miss the ancient lifestyle. In Hokkaido, it is considered bad manner to forget the endeavor that our ancestors made. Personally I suppose that is why many Sapporo people visit Hokkaido Pioneering Village in spite of its distant location.

Once you enter the main gate, the recommendation is turning left and visit the former Hokkaido Government Building. It is white with green stripes which is one of the symbols of the village, but the must-see item is on its 2nd floor--an excellent diorama of this theme park.

If you have enough time, you can choose your main target place to walk, but if you are in a tight schedule, please find the straight line in the center, where you can get on a horse-pulling train.Even though another payment beside the entry fee is required, it is worth taking it so that you can put yourself in the retro world of Hokkaido.

On the other side of the entrance, there is a restaurant.It is not special-looking, but if you want to take a bite of the Hokkaido taste, drop in and order imo-mochi. (150 JPY for one piece)it is a softly baked potato dumpling. It has been well known as a Hokkaido homemade taste, yet there are few restaurants where you can have it nowadays in Sapporo.

The regular entrance fee is 830 JPY and the horse-pulling railway cost is 260. Several discount plans are available.
