Welcome to Sapporo

What's New



The Congress venue, Sapporo Convention Center, is not connected to a hotel nearby, and the Organizing Committee recommends that the IWMC2015 participants stay around the Odori Area, which has easy access to the Congress site, the Sapporo Convention Center ( see the map ). Some other areas along the Tozai Subway Line are also convenient. Plentiful accommodations are available in Sapporo, from thrifty to luxurious, and the participants are free to choose, according to their tastes and desires.

There are three major ways to look up and choose your accommodation:

1. Use travel portal sites specializing in accommodation.

2. Booking can be made through the site here , prepared by courtesy of JTB Hokkaido Corp.
* The tariff is not necessarily discounted, but a certain number of rooms at some 20 hotels in Downtown Sapporo are held for the IWMC2015 participants until 23:59 JST (14:59 UTC and 10:59 EST) on Friday May 29, 2015, OR the rooms are booked out.

3. The Organizing Committee picked up hotels the recommended areas (see the list below). Please note that the tariffs and other conditions will vary by season and should be regarded only as references. The Organizing Committee takes no responsibility for accommodations, and participants are asked to make reservations at their discretion.

The listing is based on the following criteria:
1. A website in English is available;
2. Credit cards are accepted (in payment); and
3. The room charge includes breakfast.
