Odori Park Reviews & Ratings
When I was here there was a BEER FESTIVAL going one. It was awesome. Just a whole bunch of people coming together to enjoy the booze, the food and the company. I was really amazed by how "tame" the whole event was (well as least when I was there). People were loud (partly because of the surrounding music and conversations) and peaceful. People were minding their own business within their company. There was one gentleman who seems to be talking a his imagainery drinking buddy. And the temporary public toilets ... that is just fantastic. They were arranged along the park and it was convenient for everyone (and clean). Great stuff!! Please leave a LIKE if you find my comment useful. Thank you so much for your support.
A park easily accessible and frequented by locals and travellers alike in the daytime and nighttime. Clean and orderly though food and drinks are served in the park. In summer evenings, locals dressed in traditional Japanese costumes gather and dance to celebrate the fleeting Hokkaido summer. Make sure you arrive early; the party ends at 9pm. With the backdrop of nostalgic Sapporo TV Tower, dancing with drumbeats and smiley locals is the best!
Just a small park with many Japanese student singing and having fun. Great for a stroll after dinner. Catch the sight of TV tower too.
It’s not really a park. Unless there is a specific event going on, it doesn’t look like there is much to do here. The TV tower is pretty cool and worth going up though. It’s only a couple of bucks and the views are nice. There is a good gift shop on the mid deck and looked like they had a beer garden set up at the base of the tower. The under ground malls in the area have a ton of good shops and restaurants to check out.
This rectangular park at the heart of the city was a hub for communal activities. There was Sapporo Beer Festival the time we visited - citizens, some got well dressed in traditional Japanese gathered there for beer and food! Beer towers were seen everywhere, but the market of this beer city was quite limited to the local few. However, it was quite disappointing as craft beer or beer of foreign brands were almost absent, and many food stalls were selling similar or identical food.
