Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo

Pokémon GO Fest

Friday, August 5, at 8:00 AM Local Time
Sunday, August 7, at 8:00 PM Local Time

Pokémon GO Fest 2022 continues its world tour with a stop in Sapporo, Japan! Nakajima Park and the city of Sapporo will host this special event from August 5, 2022, to August 7, 2022. This year’s event is too big to be contained within a single park, so some gameplay elements have been expanded citywide!


Tickets are on sale now for ¥3,000 (including applicable taxes)** and are available on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are limited and will be available for purchase while supplies last. Pokémon GO Fest: Sapporo attendees may only purchase tickets for one day of the three-day event.

Morning Session and Afternoon Session

Trainers who purchase a ticket will split their day between event experiences that happen in Nakajima Park and throughout the city of Sapporo itself. When purchasing your ticket, you will select which part of the day you’d like to experience in the park.

  • A ticket for the morning session offers the event experience within Nakajima Park from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and the city event experience from 2:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. local time.

  • A ticket for the afternoon session offers the city event experience from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and the park event experience from 2:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. local time.

Please note: Only Trainers with a valid ticket for the applicable session will be able to play within Nakajima Park. There will be a one-hour intermission between sessions to allow Trainers time to move between areas.

During the citywide event experience, ticket-holding Trainers will experience event-exclusive gameplay in Sapporo. Event gameplay will not be available to ticket-holding Trainers outside Sapporo.

You can purchase tickets here.
