Sapporo 2017
The Asian Winter Games will return to Japan for the eighth edition in 2017. The first two Asian Winter Games were held in Sapporo in 1986 and 1990, and the third edition at Aomori in 2003.

Sapporo is the picturesque capital of Hokkaido – the most northerly of Japan’s four main islands – and hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 1972. The city of Obihiro will share the hosting duties with Sapporo in 2017 by staging the speed skating events.

Organisers plan to hold the 8th AWG 2017 for February 2017, and present five sports: biathlon, curling, ice hockey, skating (figure skating, short track and speed skating) and skiing (alpine, cross country, freestyle, ski jumping and snowboard).
