Maruyama Park, Sapporo

4.0
#8 of 76 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.

  • A public park and a shady lot with walking and sitting near the Hokkaido Shrine and Maruyama Zoo.

  • This is a big park that's very pretty in the winter. Large swaths of snowy open area for kids to play in. (We saw several tiny snowmen along the paths). This is where you pass through for the Maruyama...  more »
  • Go to the subway where possible from the center of the city, La non-significant discomfort. In winter, the white snow park landscape so beautiful place once upon a time just to visit.

  • A great park in Sapporo. With large pathways and tall trees. I enjoyed it immensely. It leaves a peaceful feeling. There is a shrine in the middle of the park, which also was beautiful to visit. A peaceful way to spend the morning.
  • The entrance fee is very reasonable. Awesome experience to be very near to (they are in glass cage) magnificent lion, hokkaido brown bear, huge polar bears, cute sea lion and super cute penguin! The place provides a lot of super clean toilets, and also a resting place. My kids really had a great time there.
  • It's tranquil on a regular working day. Not touristy so you have to observe the locals as during your visit.
  • Really nice winter view and temple .good for travelers to take subway for 5 minute walk to reach there
  • A beautiful and peaceful park. It is near 北海道神宮. There are so many trees and wonderful garden. I visit here in the afternoon. It is covered by yellow color. Very silent. I like it. There are two or three small japanese temples around it. Nice place.
