Other user descriptions
Located in the southwest on the plain in Ishikari Ishikari Sub-Prefecture, the city center is placed near the Toyohira River, a tributary of the Ishikari River. Mountains and hills occupy the west and south of the territory. In winter the snow is abundant. Sapporo is one of the newest cities in Japan, whose foundation dates from the late nineteenth century. It is located on a territory that was originally occupied by the Ainu, hunter-gatherer populations inhabiting northern Japan for millennia. The Tokugawa shogun had founded a trading post in 1821, in the Edo period. Being officially annexed Hokkaido Japan in 1868 during the Meiji Restoration, it was decided to found Sapporo in 1869 as the capital of Hokkaido. For your planning, the U.S. government requested help, so that the urban layout of Sapporo on a grid is different from other cities similar to traditional Japanese and American cities. She was transferred to the status of 'city' on August 1, 1922. Until the foundation of Sapporo, Hakodate was the capital and largest city of Hokkaido, and half of the twentieth century, Otaru had been more populous than Sapporo. The rapid expansion in the thirties and forties transformed fifth largest city in Japan. On the outskirts of the city built the New Chitose Airport. The Winter Olympics of 1972 held in this city were the first Winter Games made in Asia, being opened on February 3.
