Botanic Garden Hokkaido University, Sapporo

3.8
One of the oldest sites of its kind in Japan, Botanic Garden Hokkaido University provides a home for over 4,000 species of plants. Opened in 1886, the garden suffered severe damage during the 2004 typhoon, but thanks to a quick restoration, rare plants continue to thrive here. See the oldest lilac in the city, and check out the garden's tropical greenhouse and two museums.

  • Located in the heart of Sapporo, a huge botanical garden. A variety of trees and flowers can be seen. The first impression it looks like just a park. It's a good idea to walk quietly. It's a good idea to avoid the heat in the summer, trees are a heck of a lot.

  • Once you have received a commemorative stamp on the tickets, largely for the perimeter of the wheel, turn the wheel the central one day. Unfortunately, the lilac is reports only the buds, but watching the various types. Lawns are not occupied, but read the book the Crow, and no shortage of forest in the city of York to the.

  • Thanks to some as an entrance fee but quietly walk on feels bad. In the spring after flowering and leaf also seemed to be to see when to go.

  • Cool place for nature lovers. The museum looked small but the exhibit is large enough to appreciate the wildlife. The park is big but the summer blossoms are too little. I have seen enough real Christmas trees but I am looking for more colorful flowers, such as roses and tulips.
  • great! visited after a rain. enjoyed fresh air and got some nice photos.
  • Meticulously maintained but not as dining as other Japanese gardens around the country. Feels more western. Still, there are plenty places to sit and let the day go by pleasantly.
  • It's a great garden and there are muzeum inside the park. Amazing autumn scenery
  • They have an excellent collection. Note that only the greenhouses are open during the winter. The park as a whole is beautiful. If you like plants or beautiful park stroll, this place is for you.
