Additional Information

Introduction

Hokkaido Shrine is a Shinto shrine located in the center of Sapporo. In Hokkaido's past, the main entrance to the palace was facing northeast to defend against a potential Russian threat. Sacrifices were once conducted here in an attempt to improve the lives of Hokkaido's people and the shrine still holds an important place in the hearts of the locals. It is also a great place to view the cherry blossom trees in spring.
