Maruyama Park, Sapporo

4.1
#9 of 56 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.

    It is a park in the middle of when you go to Hokkaido Jingu Shrine from subway Tozai line Maruyama Koen station. I went in July, but is resting on a bench in the shade of a tree, and the breeze was very pleasant. People who set up the camera most likely wild birds flying in the garden pond or the number who did, was the feeling that the locals place, Park and grows a big tree and small playground facilities for children.

    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
