Maruyama Park, Sapporo

4.0
#8 of 70 in Parks in Sapporo
A big draw during hanami, the quiet city oasis of Maruyama Park boasts many cherry trees, blooming with color during the spring time. If you're exploring the area, the park makes a good place to stop and have a picnic away from the city bustle, and a peaceful stroll through the grounds reveals a duck pond and babbling streams. The star attraction of the park however, is the enormous weeping cherry tree, blooming spectacularly in spring, and illuminated after nightfall to striking effect. If visiting during the cherry blossom season, prepare for big crowds and high-spirited revelry deep into the night. Our Sapporo road trip website makes visiting Maruyama Park and other Sapporo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • And Maruyama is not so much a mountain. I'm I just noticed recently I can feel free to climb. I said it was pretty tough though it is generally light and many children and elderly dogs and I climbed in people, so anyone can climb is. Quickly go on the subway, Sapporo city views from the top. Photos should post such urban climbing well wouldn't it be nice? Your advice is.

  • This park is very beautiful and clean. There weren’t as many people when I went late last August. The best part of the park is hiking up Mount Maruyama, which took about an hour to reach the peak. I s...  more »

  • The place offers many things to explore and enjoy. The park is beautiful and become flowering in the first week of May due to Cherry Blossom. I recommend this place to visit in May. During the golden week the park is allowed for open fire and Barbeque. There is a Zoo nearby also. I am posting some pics taken in May during the cherry blossom.
  • Staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming ! The animals looked beautiful and healthy. But for an animal lover like me, it is a little saddening to see all the animals cooped up in a small enclosure. Perhaps it was due to it being Winter. Many of the animals were pacing around, alone in an enclosure and seemingly bored out of their minds. Despite all that, i would recommend visiting the zoo with your family. Great place for the family !
  • nothing to compare with Tokyo’s cherry blossom but it is a nice walk in Sapporo. Lots of people dating in old customs... very cute!
  • Nice Park and shrine. Not a ton of cherry blossom trees but a decent number. Lots of people picnicking during the cherry blossoms.
  • Green area in sapporo . Sakura in the begining of may . Next to Hokkaido shrine .
