I didn't take many photos when I was in Japan. Sapporo is a tourist city, but it's tourism is based around it's winter ski slopes and focused on the internal market. Visually, it felt to me very much like visiting a North American city, just on a slightly more compact scale which actually made walking from place to place practical. But largely there were just a lot of big modern buildings.

Yes, we didn't spend much time in Sapporo itself. There is an enormous caldera lake SW of Sapporo, and other landscapes around, which are much more interesting. The only thing we visited in Sapporo was the beer factory.

Re: Sapporo
If I hadn't been shopping frantically for clothes, I'd have liked to have gone to the Ainu museum but, yes, that and the beer factory seemed to be all the touristy stuff actually within Sapporo itself.
