Maruyama Park, Sapporo
(4.1/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Maruyama Park and other Sapporo attractions using our handy Sapporo tourist route planner.

  • 搭乘地下鐵至圓山公園欣賞楓葉, 順道至北海道神宮參觀, 楓紅時期的圓山公園沿途景色相當美麗, 高矮與漸層變化的樹林步道相當紓壓. 建議由地鐵徒步過去的出入口進入, 如果開車直接至北海道神宮入口, 可能會錯過圓山公園內美麗的楓林.

  • My 1st Self-drive (F&E) tour. My 1st visit to Japan. We went to Maruyama Park for a morning walk. You can choose to cut through this park where you are visiting Maruyama Zoo and Hokkaido Shine. This is a nice park during this season. We saw lots of little children dancing in the park.
  • “A great place to stroll and relax” The park is so nice! quiet! The trees are huge! The shrines are beautiful and well kept! Nice place to stroll around and relax your mind.
  • A beautiful park with maple trees which near to city center in Sapporo
  • cheery blossom here is good in Sapporo.
  • Lovely but freezing during winter. There are a few statues around and a food carnival going towards the temple
