Odori Park, Sapporo-shi Reviews - Write a Review

  • It is impressive, long green park. During the summer in some of the areas of the park are held beer festivals. In the autumn German sausage, cinnamon and sugar roasted peanuts, hot wine. The park has an outdoor stage, what can be rented for use from the City Office. The price is under ten thousand yen per half day. Performing, music there is a little limited, for a City Office staff always walks around and checks to “noise level”. Often giving verbal warnings to get the volume down. Taking away the joy of performing live music. But in the average the park itself it’s great.

  • It's a long stretch park that is just at the front of the Sapporo TV tower and very near Odori station itself, so it's worth a visit in due convenience. The park is usually where the festivals are held so it's a pretty hot spot for tourists and locals alike. There are fountains along the stretch, and you get to see different theme for each square that you cover. Personally not that big of a fan for this park, but I guess I'll have to come here again during a festive period to see the true hype.

  • It was quiet.. And to was cold in November. I don't see many people walking about this park and it was to be a little over rated. Maybe this park really shine during festive seasons.. I'm not sure..

  • I came here in great season fall, and they only have this food and drink festive now. This is first time I join the food festive in Japan, I need admired their cleanses, I don't see any garbage on the ground and most people find a table and eat. (sure their are many tables). The park is huge, I took a lot walk there, beware to wear a comfortable shoes. I want to come here a little late at Oct. , and I could see the maple tree switch to red.

  • A very long park in the middle of downtown Sapporo. At one end is the old court of appeals and at the other end is the Sapporo TV tower. I was disappointed to find all the fountains had been turned off in preparation for winter. Will have to come back and visit in the summer.
