Hokkaido University, Sapporo
(4.3/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Sprawling and peaceful, Hokkaido University offers scenic respite to students and tourists who walk, jog, rest, and picnic on its grounds. Between the campus buildings, fields dotted with poplar trees, walking paths, and lily ponds offer a relaxing break from the city. A winding stream rushes through the scenic park, which also features a model dairy farm harking back to the university's roots as an agricultural college. Stop by the information center at the main gate to pick up a map. Put Hokkaido University into our Sapporo holiday planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Sapporo.

  • Gingko is well-known, but I visited during 29 years Buri snow was all over snow. The combination of snow and blue sky were really beautiful. It is good to go was widely only about 1 hour stroll within the University. From Sapporo station near wilderness, University of Nice I think.

  • Very nice foliage was a leisurely stroll in the peaceful setting of students? There are some staff.

  • Nice little walk, great for pictures and just a day for relaxing. We saw some student activities near the cafeteria where they had a bit of a skit happening.. It was really interesting to watch!

  • Quite large campus with beautiful atmosphere. I took a walk around campus for a couple of hours by reading books and listening to music. I was really envious of the students studying here and locals living nearby.
  • Very close to JR Sapporo station, the campus grounds were very pretty during Autumn, but as one would note from photos, the campus would be great for all the seasons for viewing trees in each season. Sakura should be available here in April/May, autumn leaves in October and Winter covered trees in Dec/Jan.
  • Best University in Hokkaido Prefecture and one of the bests in Japan. Ranked the most beautiful campus in Japan, Hokkaido University environment is a great place to study while enjoying beautiful scenery.
  • One of the National Universities of Japan. One of the biggest campus. Beautiful. Comfortable. Seasons are spectacular.
  • Historic university with a scenic campus worthy for a tourist visit. Interesting old university buildings. Calm and lush forests.
