Maruyama Park, Sapporo

(240+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
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.

  • Really nice place to walk around. Seeing local people enjoy their barbeque picnic under the cherry blossoms.
  • The winter scene is gorgeous, everywhere is a shooting point. The path is well illustrated with the map guide. There's even a mini slope for young kids to slide with. Very easy to get there from subway station
  • Great place for enjoying Cherry blossom in Sapporo during early spring time.
  • Huge park in snow. Zoo ia also interesting spot for tourtist with children. Tax is better to access from subway becuase it cost only 700yen .
  • Nice for quiet stroll. Beware of crows (if you are holding food)
