Sapporo is one fastest-rising tourist destination in Japan. Being Japan’s fifth largest City, and the prefectural capital of Hokkaido, Sapporo boasts of dynamic urban center and at the same time a transit hub from which to access Hokkaido’s mountains and hot springs with worthwhile attractions to keep you here for days.
After the showing of the hit movie Kita Kita last year a lot of Filipinos flocked to Sapporo and were in awe with its numerous attractions.
Our national carrier, the Philippine Airlines, in fact have launched a direct flight from Manila to Hokkaido and vice versa, because of the growing demand and recent surge of passengers in the destination.
That is why the City Government of Sapporo has initiated an event “Sapporo Kita Kita”: Sapporo City Promotion last December 10, 2018 as a gratitude to the recent developments that has made this city in Japan a popular tourist destination, and that Filipinos would be updated on what Sapporo can offer to the tourists.
The event held in the best Japanese themed restaurant, Movie Stars Cafe located in Centris Mall Quezon City were attended by top travel agencies in the Philippines, as well as very special guests : Sapporo City’s Vice Mayor Koyu Kishi, Sapporo Tourist Association President Mr. Ryu Shibata and officials of Philippine Airlines.
The show was hosted by the Phenomenonal star of Kita Kita, Empoy Marquez and the idol group MNL48 performed one of their hit songs.
Everybody had fun and after joining the event, had the same wishlist: Be able to see Sapporo by themselves and experience what this much talked about City has to offer.
And as what Empoy Marquez says in the hit movie, “Kita Kita sa Sapporo!”
