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.

It's snowy winter all over the world, why should we go to Hokkaido!
❄️ Because of the snow in Hokkaido, you look forward to it, it will come. The maritime climate nourishes Hokkaido all year round, and when it cools down, the continuous heavy snow falls.
❄️ Because the snow in Hokkaido contains 95% of the air, it is very clean. It can sweep away all the dust in the world, together with the bad mood of the whole year; the blue sky and the streets after the snow are clear, and the air is pure and fresh.
In October, the trip to Hokkaido Shrine, covered in maple Leaves is hidden in the round mountain park of Sapporo, was beyond amazing. It runs along with the big stone bird and passes through the Suomumu Shrine. I used to come in winter because the snow looks heavenly and I thought it was better. It is the Hokkaido Shrine, so I went back. This time the weather is good. I will continue to move forward and finally come to Hokkaido Shrine. I do not need tickets. It is slightly different from the architecture of other Japanese shrines. It is a bit like a windmill roof and should be a feature of the Hokkaido region. In the morning, many Japanese people come to pray, and the wishing card has a cute bear on it. It is actually more expensive than other shrines. The same Sakura bell is 800 yen here, and other shrines are 500. It may be particularly effective. There is also a self-service 200 yen for signing, and there is a cute gold lucky cat in the paper, which is really adorable.
