Odori Park, Sapporo-shi Reviews
The Autumn Festival was here when we arrived. We have visited it every day. The food is great. The vendors have been very helpful and outgoing. The Kobe beef and sake are outstanding. We are so lucky that this event was here the entire time of our stay. It made the trip.
Went there for beer garden party with colleagues. It was real business. People love it don’t they? Overall this park divides the southern and northern part of Sapporo City. Near to office buildings and that famous red district Susukino, many things can be seen here. Ōdōri (大通) means "large street" in Japanese. It spans about 1.5 km and covers 78,901 m². During the urban planning of Sapporo, it was originally designated as the main street but it eventually became a park. Throughout the year, many events and ceremonies such as the Sapporo Lilac Festival and the Sapporo Snow Festival are held in the park, and local landmarks including the Sapporo TV Tower and the Sapporo City Archive Museum are located within its boundaries (source: Wiki).
I really love this park! It is huge and filled with so many beautiful flowers. The best place I have visited in Sapporo so far. ❤️🧡💛
It would have been a great experience. But we just arrived just as the stalls were closing. We managed to get some nice beef and venison to eat. I was really looking forward to it.
Went for the Snow and Ice festival there and had a great time. There was lots of street food venders, fun activities and drinks. It was really amazing. One of my favorite memories of living in Japan. Dress warmly friends!
