Sapporo's streets form a grid, leaving plenty of room for green spaces, on the top rung of which features the remarkable botanic garden. In winter, when the city is carpeted with snow, life is led underground for the most part, but it is also the season of a major event: the Snow Festival (February), when monumental artworks made of ice decorate Odori Park. All year round, Japan's fifth largest city boasts a lively night life.
