Enjoy Japanese traditional culture in Sapporo!
Although Sapporo does not have such a long history as Kyoto or Tokyo, you can experience some aspects of Japanese traditional culture such as the tea ceremony, wearing a kimono or Zen meditation. Get a taste of Japanese culture through this tour.
We will visit Hokkaido Shrine first and see and feel the atmosphere of Shintoism, Japan's indigenous religion, in a rich natural setting. Then, we will go to a Zen temple to experience Zen meditation (approx. 2 hours) or to another facility to experience the tea ceremony while wearing a kimono.
