    Place was pretty wide and spacious even with the Natsumatsuri (Summer festival) going on. A few sculptures and fountains and many sitting areas. Good place for some greenery in the middle of the city.  more »

    Long park running east-west through central Sapporo. TV tower at one end is lit up brightly in the evening. There's always people in the park and it's the home of many festivals. If you want greenery and plants then another park might be a better choice, but Odori is definitely one of the hubs of Sapporo. Beer festival in summer, snow festival in winter etc.

    Fantastic gardens park with lots of high-rise building and fountains. Very beautiful and relaxing spot in the downtown of the city. Have a walk thru or take a chair and enjoy the atmosphere or take a book with you for a longer break.

    Beautiful and we'll landscaped along with being very clean! There are small vendors around, not too many to buy snacks while enjoying your view and walk. It's a very big park, I think 12 small blocks, each of which is modeled different.

    Nice walk, good for taking photos with Sapporo TV Tower in the background. There was a food festival when we went there, and many events happen here throughout the year. Gets a little crowded though with many tourists around.

    A beautiful, seasonally festive place. Summer is the best place to visit and relax there. Winter festival is one of the main events in Odori park in February.
