  • It was already snowing (earlier than expected) when I visited the park in mid Nov 2019. The Park is quiet, and occasionally you could hear the birds singing. The snow is white and fluffy, pouring...  more »
  • We took the streetcar from the bottom on Mt. Moiwa to the park. It was a snowy day, and we felt like we were walking in a winter wonderland - we even sang the song. Since everything was covered in.....  more »
  • Probably looks really nice in spring or summer but I was here during winter. The park was covered in snow and it looks pretty in a different way. The concert hall looks great as well.
  • It is very beautiful and peaceful in winter. It is a snowy scenery haven. There is a giant telescope observatory in Nakajima Park that could see venus but it was closed for the winter. However, the lone staff tending to it turned the area outside the observatory into holiday snow sled station. He was very enthusiastic and pleasant. Definitely a good memory during my stay in Sapporo.
  • Upon arrival at CTS International Airport on May 7, 2018, I sought advice from the Tourist Information Centre there. Nakajima Park was the only place that sakura blossoms chasers like me would still be delighted with the sights. I wasted no time to get there to capture the last sakura blossoms in Japan 2018! Postscript On Sunday, February 10, 2019, at Sapporo’s Snow Festival’s Susukino site, I saw a promo that the Garden would light up for the last time that night. I seized the opportunity to go and see it as I did rowing at its lake months ago. The little lights put up there did drive away some darkness!
  • This is a beautiful park to walk through or to sit at the benches and eat. The fragrance of the tree in fall is incredibly beautiful. I've been told the cherry blossoms can be viewed here in the spring.
  • Very beautiful Park to walk around. They have seats around the lake and the subway station. Lovely!
