  • Walk around the lake, look at the flower beds, and then don't miss the Japanese Garden. There's a nice playground for kids too..  more »
  • This is a beautiful park. Trees are now in green, yellow, orange and red colours. A must visit place while in Sapporo, especially in Autumn.  more »

  • The park is quietly nestled into urban Sapporo. It is next to a lovely lake, with skyscrapers in the back ground. I tried urban camping in a small clove of trees, but was constantly disturbed by turning cars, cars whose lights illuminated the trees. I consider it too populated to be suitable for camping, although I have read online reviews suggesting otherwise.
  • Lovely park. I went there during winter end of Feb, it was full of snow!..a winter wonderland in the middle of the city! Nice to stroll around as it is very relaxing. A nice quick escape from the busy city center as it is accessible by tram that connects to the busy / shopping area.
  • A beautiful park, so peaceful here... Moreover the drain water is super clean & clear, able to see through
  • I don’t usually review parks because most of them aren’t impressive. Nakajima Koen on the other hand is AN ABSOLUTE GEM. Sakura season, this place cannot get more picturesque. Rent a boat, the lake offers a great sight from a different perspective.
  • Lovely park conveniently served by two subway stations. It is a winter wonderland, but I'm sure it's beautiful all year round as well. There are vending machines around if you need to grab a drink, as well as public restrooms. Drop by the small observatory.
