Odori Park, Sapporo-shi Reviews
Nice park but there was absolutely nothing in the past except snow. There were no displays or anything. No lights show, nothing. This was December. Oh well. The street was nice with lights on the trees and the lighted tower nearby. It was about 6 blocks from the Sapporo station. We took the train to get there but walked back to the station. I hear that there are ice sculptures during the ice festivals during the month of February.
Sapporo snow festival is first of its kind I have seen. Great food, great blend of science and art in making the sculpture. Lot of adrinaline rush while you see the snowboards and skiing folks showing their talent. Just be careful with the slippery snow, you can use additional grip on shoes to prevent slipping which can be bought from convenient stores in Sapporo and enjoy the festival.
Best place to visit during Sapporo Snow Festival.. Lots of arts created from ice which involved artist from many countries.. Seen one participation from my own country Indonesia.. Love it..
Quite a long stretch park. Great walking through during the Snow Festival. Many astonishing displays. Best to visit at night
Sapporo 69 Snow Festival is on going. Well organised, lot's of foot traffic controllers to reduce human congestion. Good variety of food vendors on-site to serve the visiting public. Place was well kept considering to volume of people visiting. Tents are available for shelter from the cold.
