Odori Park - Review
Constructed in 1871, the Odori park is located to the center of the city and covers 1.5 kilometers from east to west- dividing the city in the northern administrative part and the southern commercial and residential part.
- 92 species of trees including varieties of lilac.
- Several modern fountains
- Slide designed by Isamu Noguchi.
The park itself is a popular spot to simply get some green therapy and take some time off from the hectic urban life. The place is a must-visit during festivals like the Snow festival and the Sapporo Beer festival when the locals and tourists are present to witness the grandeur and fun side of Sapporo.

Odori Park, Sapporo-shi Reviews
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).
One of Sapporo’s many parks and in winter, host to the Sapporo Snow Festival, which happens in February every year. Here you can see snow sculptures of all sizes, exhibitions (such as the Big Air) ski/snowboard jumping demo and be fed with a variety of delicious foods from stalls all over the park. There are also other festivals here during Spring, Autumn and Summer. Overall this park is just a beautiful place to take a stroll in or have a picnic at on a nice sunny day.
This park has to be one of the highlights of Sapporo. You can see a perfect view of Sapporo TV Tower as well, it's just like a miniature Central Park. The bustling vibe of students as well as old retired elders gives it a nice and calming atmosphere. It could use a little bit more decor though.
Nice atmosphere, always busy but still you can find a spot to relax. Ppl sitting on the grass, by the fountain, on the benches. Lots of chatting, laughter. I like the place and it's convenient for taking a break after shopping around the area. Nice pass thru also from the station to the nightlife area.
By the major street in Sapporo. Find yourself a famous “Corn on the cob” wagon for fresh corn and potatoes. Not much to see there, and parking are pricy.
