Also, where is the best place at Sapporo i can go for 01/01 new year countdown, watch fireworks.

Hello Chan Joo Meng, Peter,

Will you travel by rail to Hokkaido as well? In that case I would recommend a nation wide JR Pass. If you stay only in Hokkaido, consider purchasing a Hokkaido pass, to at least cover travel between Sapporo and Hakodate. As that is the most expensive trip by far.

I've not celebrated new year in Sapporo myself. So unfortunately I don't know much about what the best place to celebrate new year is. I would assume around Sapporo TV tower.

Hope this helps!
