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.

  • Without saying a Word and famous tourist attractions. Statue of Clark and poplar trees photography pleasure. But the highlights of the Hokkaido University campus, many others. Also good, relax on the banks of the pond taking a NAP on the banks of the River as well. Gourmet offers jogging along main street, dotted with fun. It is off the beaten path, so ordinary citizens can use library, where you can enjoy.

  • Is the Hokkaido University campus is located on the campus of the University of Tokyo compared with very wide, there are lots of trees, a great place.

  • As is shown in the travel brochure I saw there was a special thing. Just feel the atmosphere of a University campus? Japan. If you do not have to go the schedule seems to be bbadeushada. The day is a good day to play all day on campus and think it would be great, do the time

  • 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.
