Asahiyama Kinen Koen, Sapporo

4.7
#11 of 56 in Parks in Sapporo
Nature / Park
Perched 137.5 m (451.1 ft) above sea level, Asahiyama Kinen Koen affords spectacular views over the cityscape to the Japanese sea. Donated in 1946, the park was opened to the public in 1970 to commemorate the city's 100 year anniversay. Surrounded by a forest consisting of Ezo alder, Ezo spruce, magnolia, and false acacia, you can stroll along the wooded hiking trails to the ornate flower gardens and observation point, a paved square and fountain offering the best views of the area. Nighttime visitors are rewarded with an equally spectacular twinkling skyline. Arrange to visit Asahiyama Kinen Koen and other attractions in Sapporo using our Sapporo trip itinerary builder.

  • The view is OK, but not great. The paths are not clear of snow even in March, so you are not able to take a walk everywhere in the park. Probably OK in the summertime, but not in March.  more »
