Hotel Okura Sapporo
The Okura is a midrange hotel with well-sized rooms (a rarity in Japan) and a few niceties like kimonos and a tea ceremony room. The Okura is situated a few minutes’ walk of Sapporo's wooden Clock Tower and the tree-lined and fountain-dotted Odori Park (really a wide street, pleasant for strolling), with the main train station in close proximity. Dining options include the usual Japanese, Chinese, and international restaurants, but the central location means guests are spoiled for choice of food, entertainment, and shopping. Executive level rooms offer better city views. (The nearby JR Tower Hotel Nikko Sapporo is a sister property.)
